Employers can pay foreign workers health examination fees online

KUALA LUMPUR: Employers of foreign workers can pay their workers' health examination fees online via the Foreign Workers Medical Examination Monitoring Agency (Fomema) employers' portal from today.

Its chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Hatar Ismail said the facility was introduced to enable employers conduct their businesses faster and more efficiently via the portal at https://portal.fomema.my/.

"We no longer have to use a scanner to scan related documents as conducted during the conventional registration process at Fomema branches, with the internet facility.

"All employers have to do is to open an account for user identity and password and register their foreign workers online via Financial Process Exchange (FPX), namely, a payment channel provided for 15 participating banks," he said in a statement here today.

He said the existing registration method at all Fomema branches was still being continued to accommodate those employers who did not have internet facility. — Bernama
