A resolution by the Cuban Labor and Social Security Ministry (MTSS) will allow foreign persons who are not resident in Cuba to work in the Special Development Zone of Mariel.
The document states that companies doing business with the Development Zone, will be able to directly contract foreign workers not resident in Cuba, to a limit of 15 percent of the total number of workers in the Development Zone.
The measure is detailed in MTSS Resolution 21, 2016, published on December 8th in the National Gazette (www.gacetaoficial.cu).
The resolution is in addition to Law 313, passed in September 2013, which allows foreign companies to directly contract foreign workers who are not resident in Cuba, to run or lead technical posts.
