What is so Important about your work permit Expiry Date?
If your Work permit expires, your visa expires immediately and you start paying overstay. If your visa expires, you have to leave the country and you will need to start the whole process over again. The foundation board will review the members membership if this was done without communicating to the foundation.
You can renew your work permit up to 45 days before the expiry date, however you must notify the legal team to get permission to do it earlier as this requires the legal team to prepare the paperwork before your planned time.
