Can Foreigners Take Up Jobs On Visiting Visa


14 November 2012

Margao: The Sernabatim Tourism Taxi Owners Association have demanded to know from the police whether foreigners on visiting visa can take up employment or business during their stay in the state.

A day after the taxi owners were accused for restraining a tour bus at Sernabatim, the taxi owners had demanded action against a lady tour operator, for collecting guests and taking them for sight seeing in tour buses.

Association president Lovesh Goes pointed out that local taxi operators would be the most hit if foreigners without employment visas are allowed to work for tour operators.

“Yesterday, the Colva police were prompt in registering an offence against some unknown taxi operators for wrongful restraint. But, the police did not hear our pleas and initiated no action against the lady foreigner”, he said, while terming the complaint registered against the taxi owners as false and baseless.

Aggrieved over the incident, the taxi operators from the coastal belt called on Benaulim MLA Caitu Silva and called for action.

The Benaulim MLA is believed to have assured the taxi owners that he would discuss the matter with Chief Minister, Manohar Parrikar to secure the interests of the locals dependent on the tourism business.
