and convenient way to check an international employee's
updated work status, as well as to verify variable
information such as occupation and date of work pass
expiration.
A must-have app for all employers, foreign employees,
agents, or anyone who wishes to verify if a work pass
card issued by MOM is valid, the app scans the quick
response (QR) code printed on new card. By simply
launching the app to scan the QR code, the validity of a
work pass card can be instantly verifi ed.
3. United States and Canada: Travel authorizations. In
the U.S. and Canada, there are an increasing number
of mobile-friendly government websites that make it
possible for foreign nationals to easily apply for travel
authorizations. For example, the Electronic System for
Travel Authorization (ESTA) in the U.S. and Electronic
Travel Authorizations (eTA) in Canada both feature
straightforward applications that can easily be accessed
through a smartphone or tablet.
Run by the Department of Homeland Security, ESTA is
an automated system that determines the eligibility
of visitors to travel to the U.S. under the Visa Waiver
Programme (VWP). Whilst authorization via ESTA does
not determine whether a traveler is admissible to the U.S.
(U.S. Customs and Border Protection offi cers determine
admissibility upon travelers' arrival), the ESTA application
collects biographic information and answers VWP
eligibility questions. ESTA applications may be submitted
at any time prior to travel, though it is recommended
that travelers apply as soon as they begin preparing
travel plans or prior to purchasing airline tickets.
In Canada, eTA is an entry requirement for visa-exempt
foreign nationals traveling to the country by air. An eTA
is electronically linked to a traveler's passport and is
valid for up to fi ve years or until the passport expires-
whichever comes fi rst. With a valid eTA, foreigners
can travel to Canada as often as they want for short
stays-normally for up to six months at a time. However,
much like the United States' ESTA, Canada's eTA doesn't
guarantee entry to Canada.
4. Malaysia and Singapore: Online payment portals to
pay government fees. In Malaysia, the MYEXPATS Centre
and the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation Sdn
Bhd (MDEC) will no longer accept cheques or banker's
drafts in payment for government fees. All fees are now
required to be paid through an online payment portal

via Visa Mastercard or internet banking. MDEC will also
accept payment via a debit card. There are no charges
imposed on the transactions. In Singapore, there is also
an online facility for the payment of government fees

for an employment pass. Fees can be paid by GIRO, Visa,
Mastercard, or ENets debit. In both countries, the use
of online payment portals has improved effi ciency and
allowed users to easily obtain receipts online.
Mobile technology has a way of streamlining processes
and making them more affordable. This is especially
important when dealing with complicated and
ever-changing immigration rules, regulations, and
requirements. Whilst leveraging mobile technology is still
a fairly new concept for governments, it is expected to
grow in the coming years and help ensure that the world
becomes more connected-at least for employers looking
for qualifi ed talent.
