New World Immigration has raised concerns regarding the law. The company said that there isn’t a mention on how much a Visa will cost. It said that the inclusion of both the Department of Labour and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) would delay the visa process.

New World Immigration also questioned the appointment of VFS Group, contracted by the Home Affairs to receive visa applications.
