Nepal and Malaysia on Monday have signed a labour agreement, according to which the Kuala Lumpur government will let Nepali workers take up employment opportunities in Malaysia at zero cost.

It means the employers will have to cover all costs involved in the recruitment process including flight tickets. The visa will be granted free of cost.

Nepal’s Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security Gokarna Bista and Malaysia‚Äôs Minister for Human Resources M Kulasegaran signed the agreement at a function organised in Kathmandu today.

The agreement will resume the migration of Nepali workers which was stalled for past few months after Nepal government stopped issuing permits in a bid to force Malaysia for the agreement.

Before that, complaints were rife about cheating of the workers by recruitment agencies.

The new agreement also specifies provisions about different types of leaves and salary payment system.

Malaysia has been one of the biggest hosts for Nepali migrant workers for past few decades.
