To date, 1324 people have been resettled from labor surplus regions of the country (SKO, Almaty, Zhambyl, Kyzylorda, Mangistau) to work-deficit (EKR, RMS, Pavlodar, Kostanai). Thus, 335 families in need of employment are voluntarily resettled from the southern and western regions to the north.
According to the press service of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population, able-bodied citizens who have arrived to a new place, are employed in permanent jobs.
State support for voluntary resettlement includes the provision of subsidies for relocation - this is 35 MCI for each member of the family, as well as reimbursement for housing and utilities - monthly for twelve months, from 15 to 30 MCI.
We recall that in order to increase the mobility of labor resources within the framework of the Program for the Development of Productive Employment and Mass Entrepreneurship, the Government has defined the regions of retirement and admission, as well as a social package for the support of immigrants.
Resettlement is voluntary and is carried out only if there are vacancies for employers and guarantees of employment. For this, by the time of resettlement, the host country provides employment centers with information on which professions require additional manpower resources, requirements for specialists, and working conditions. Settlers who do not have any qualifications are given the opportunity to obtain a working specialty in the framework of short-term training.
The implementation of this direction of the Program is designed to increase the territorial mobility of labor resources and the rational resettlement of citizens in accordance with the needs of the economy.
