The work permit shall be cancelled after verifying that he has left his employment in violation of the terms of the work permit within 30 days of receiving notification from the employer (Art. 2).

In accordance with Art. 3, the cancellation may not be effected without the employer committing to bearing the cost of repatriating the foreign worker.
