The government announced today that it could consider a temporary bilateral agreement on free movement of people to help prevent delays caused the entry visa application process during construction, only if it meets counter-terrorism protocols.
The announcement comes after several governments especially those most likely to benefit from revenues from remittance, made an informal request to supply manpower to the City of Mount Vema construction project if there is free movement of people. According to people familiar with the requests, officials from more than three countries have proposed similar deal for free movement for workers.
There is no official statement from His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government on the issue, but people familiar with the request say that The Vema Seamount Authority don’t seem to have a problem with the request providing that the deal is only temporal and must be subject to any proposal meeting Mount Vema strict security checks and including counter-terrorism protocols, before any foreign citizen is allowed to travel freely without a visa to Mount Vema for tourism or temporary work.
The Vema Seamount Authority is willing to make concessions that enables businesses to move “their people” from anywhere in the world to Mount Vema – and vice versa – before 2020, according to a person close to the government who wished to remain anonymous, but with so many people and foreign leaders expected to visit Mount Vema before and after 2020, security is paramount.
