Permanent residency has been granted to 125 people out of a total of 242 applicants under the new Permanent Residence System, said the chairman of the Central Committee for Implementation of Permanent Residence System, Union Minister for Immigration and Population Lt-Gen Ko Ko.
He made the announcement during a committee meeting in Nay Pyi Taw on Monday. He said that 242 applications were received as of September.
Approval for the 44 remaining applications is being sought from higher authorities, according to the union minister.
The purpose of the meeting was to screen another 55 permanent residency applicants according to the criteria set by the government.
The system has been adopted to permit foreign investors, experts, former citizens and foreign relatives of Myanmar citizens to stay in the country for longer periods and to allow them to participate in the reform process. National security, national interests and the protection of small and medium businesses are the major factors considered during the granting process.
