Ban Banned!

One of the things that has always irritated me about this country was the practice of imposing a six-month ban on workers who tried to change their job. Certain professional categories (doctors, engineers etc) were exempt from this, but for most people it meant that they really could not change their jobs without having to spend at least six months in their home country.

It was a one-sided and pointless exercise.

But yesterday, with immediate effect, (and no warning) the practice has been stopped. According to the wonderful top number one paper Khaleej Times at least.

If this is true then it's definitely a step in the right direction.

Sorry Keefieboy,

It was a little over the top I reckon.
