    • I disagree. Make it USD 1,000.00 Not only are we broke but the coming tourism season will be minimal. Besides that we have too many unemployed Antiguans.

    • I would have charged $1000.00 take or leave it..
      Or leave ANTIGUA PERIODT…..

      All the bleached face jamaicans…guyanese….haitians…africans can chole ..I SAID WHAT I SAID.

      • So if u go to America to shop, or visit they should charge u that just to enter u flipping wicked!

      • NOT HERE TO BLEND IN … YOU GONNA CHOKE ON ALL THAT HATE U HAVE IN YUH ! YOU GOODLY BLEACH OUT AND STAY BAD WHERE U ARE TALKING BOUT BLEACHED OUT JAMAICANS

        • Shit house go sym. All mi see a Antigua a some ugly rass can bet u a 1. Place full a board house if unu get a category 5 a done it done.

      • I hope hope next time u put on your radio u don’t listen any jamaican r afrobeat music n listen to Chinese n Arabic music..u can’t black b person

    • This is just the application fee. The actual cost of the approved work permit is much higher.

  1. Mr Byam ayou deh can see god face?? It should be 500 caz you no hv to find um so e nah affect you!! Kmt

    • This is just the application fee. The actual cost of the approved work permit is much higher.

    • This is just the application fee. The actual cost of the approved work permit is much higher.

  2. You could pay the application fee,$100.Then the permit could be denied.Just do not look for any refunds if not approved.

    • same like when u apply for a visa u have to pay all the fees then when its denied the fees are none refundable. Just gotta press ur luck

  3. That’s total bullshit .. Antigua alone cash so broke . From 10$ to 100.00 . Some of y’all on here talking bout it should be 1000$.
    Listen all when it’s 2000us y’all still not getting certain jobs so hush yuh scunt!!

  4. All of these persons will be in some way contributing payroll tax, they will be contributing just like every other worker. MBS, Social and Levy.

    Sell as many work permits as possible. There isnt exactly a influx of immigrants due to no airlines from other caribbean island . Income will be generated by them having work, paying taxes, consuming goods .. the money will accelerate . Money velocity .. thats how fast money goes in the economy, more people spending the faster the money moves the more turn it gets and faster wealth is created. Bickering about this Nationality and that Nationality BLAH BLAG …too xenophobic

    Hard working people who do their job well weather they like the job or not will always succeed.

    • Du u really think the non nationals money is fluctuating here in antigua?please stop fooling ur self and check out the money grams and western unions all there money is going back to there homes where ever they r from..And that also one of the reasons antigua is in a state by its self to much money is going out on a daily base ..the government needs to look into that..

      • Exactly! That work permit fee is all Antigua getting from
        Them .. everything else goes back to jamaica and DR

    • Most sensible comment have seen so far….

      Wow i thought this was a nation built on love and compassion for one another.

      See black people attacking each other. Now i see why BLACK race has refused to grow up and get developed, regardless of their geographical location on the face of the earth. The XENOPHOBIC slavery attitude is worse than white to black racism.

      Well, we know the government needs money, but you dont have to kill people with excess overcharge here and there. Just like this comment say, those who are hardworking will still be better off at the end than those who wish their fellow neighbour pay huge.

      Above all let the love of Christ spread abroad in our hearts and lets educate ourselves. Too much mediocrity among black people especially in this present generation.

  5. I do hope everyone who is commenting and also encouraging the government of Antigua and Barbuda to further punish foreigners (so called brothers and sisters when it’s convenient) who only come to the island trying to make a better way for themselves and their families know that this information is also being viewed by tourists who also come to Antigua and Barbuda which is heavily dependent on Tourism. The warm and friendly hospitality of Antigua and its people is on show for the World right here. Please go ahead feel free to leave a comment

  6. Antiguans people doesn’t know how to work properly, we need foreign people to upgrade the island , Apua’s electrician are completely sucks , they don’t know what they suppose to do , the best builders in Antigua are foreign company , Antigua public works doesn’t work at all …
    That’s why Antigua will be always full of issues everywhere , all around the world every country has a camera system spreaded in every corner , in Antigua there’s nothing at all , the killers of the custom guys in another country would be already in jail …. please don’t say bullshit , if the workers will be only Antiguans we gonna be the worst country in the world soon .
    We cannot still live on the donkey and build houses on 4 concrete blocks , we need to upgrade , we need people who knows how to develop the island , we keep putting money in the politician poket and write bullshit on social networks …
    Wake up antiguans wake up
    Anybody has been overseas????
    Really nobody saw the difference between every fucking country and us ?!?!?!
    We are sucks

    • See that yh all biggest problem antigua people na lub work..But ur so wrong this is what it is..put it this way antigua people na work for the peanut money that the non nationals would work for…And we don’t take bullshit from nobody so u can say what u want antiguans r hard worker who enjoys being paid properly some a r u want the work done but na wa pay when time come fu pay..

      • Youre absolutely correct when you say antiguan don’t work for peanut money. Hence the reason foreigners come in your country and try to make better for themselves thru the same job that y’all refuse. One man’s trash is another mans gold ! Its kinda like the same thing when y’all go the America y’all will clean dog faeces if that’s the only job available because you’re there to make the money to take care of your family back home. There’s so much to say but remember this there are people world-wide migrating from there home country to find better lives in other people’s country it’s called survival.

  7. These politician promise when election time and in office they switch like green lizard . May god forgive you all for your wicked deeds and devil mind

  8. many of times i see where immigration fees have imposed on us as non nationals ,but yet still our salary are increase,the unions are not defending us,even though some of us are paying unions dues,and at moment alot of us are not working because of the corona virus situation,I think the Labour department should reconsider this fee increase on non nationals……

  9. Maybe if everyone pays up it can be $50.00. For example the BBQ grills, tray vendors and after dark service providers.

  11. A wonder a how many of y’all dumb scunt actually born ya.. Before ya hate on foreign go and check your birth certificate.

  12. I can remember some other country fight jamaican real hard and now they are worst than haiti so be careful of the speech u make about other plp country antiguan are so badminded…

      • I cannot agree with her referring to all antiguans as badminded because there are some absolutely beautiful hearts, beautiful souls who are antiguan national. I think the ones who never travelled are the ones who are unappreciative of non nationals.

  13. As an expat I have been in Antigua for a few years, managing a small buisness. When the business opened before i was here a few years ago we hired Antiguan managers to run it and it didnt work, we had to let them go. We opted to have an expat run the buisness, now the buisness is extremaly succesfull to a point that it created 5 job positions where we have hired Antiguans and we are on the mission to keep it that way by giving proper trainning, motivation and community involment. We belive that it all resides on creating a culture of good buisness ethics. As an expat I dont expect any Favoritism but fair treatment. I understand that fees and work permits are for us to pay, in my case just to clear the confussion . work permit fee : $10ec , lawyers fee$700-800 ec , work permit $7000 ec. So my yearly expense in work permit puts me around the $8000. ec per year, which gives me the opportunity to be here and create jobs.

  14. SOME OF THEM THAT TALKING DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT IS A WORK PERMIT APPLICATION IS. THATS NOT THE PERMIT FEE. IF I AM NOT WRONG IT WAS ONLY $10.00. A LOT OF YOU MEN HATE NONE NATIONAL BE YOU LOOSE YOUR WOMAN TO JAMAICAN GUYANESE, & SPANISH MEN BUT WE NONE NATIONAL CONTRIBUTE TO THE ECONOMY THAN MOST OF YOU ANTIGUANS. WE KEEP MEDICAL BENEFITS SOCIAL SECURITY, EDUCATION LEVY A FLOAT. I’M A NONE NATIONAL AND I AM IN THE SAME JOB FOR 19 YEARS. HOW MUCH OF YOU THAT BASHING HATE NONE NATIONAL CAN SAY THAT. MOST US ARE PRODUCTIVE THAN YOU ANTIGUANS. GIVE US A BREAK.

    • Majority of Antiguan’s are Bitter cuz we take their jobs and man/woman.They lack professionalism, good etiquette, mannerisms and omg Customer service, NOT forgetting alot of them are facially challenged; a face only a mother can love and they love to bash non nationals. Is because of non nationals you all start getting likkle nice looking people and children in this place smh.

      You all better go learn to get the ryshe out of fish and cook properly . Soak down the fish in lemon water and likkle flour.

      The thing that hurts me is that is we own mattie black man does be fighting you down for no reason at all.

  15. Wish y’all would say all these horrible stuff to we face. Run up In our culture but don’t what we around. Antigua nuh nice at all without other nationalities. And the ones watching Jamaicans sending bk money, y’all badmind that’s why most antiguans still live Inna parents house, no damn ambition. Just wa Inna car and house a rotten dwn. Get some Jamaican ambition
