Short term work permit for Lesotho are not included in Lesotho’s immigration regulations. However, work authorization is in the sole discretion of the Department of Labour in Lesotho. The Home Affairs office is only involved with the local registration / residence permit. Exceptional motivation is needed and the discretion of the issuance of the permit is dedicated to the department of labour.
An employment certificate is issued by the department of labour and only required if the foreigner works in the private sector.
Applications for Work Authorization can only be submitted on Tuesday at the Department of Labour.
There is no special list or critical skills list that Lesotho offers.
NB: The textile industry provides majority the employment to the people. In this sector a specific percentage is supposedly in place, not certain of specifics. This however concerns manual labour anyway so would not easily require foreign expertise.
