On 4th November 2021, the Faroese Ministry for Commerce and Environment, and the Ministry of Immigration made an agreement on a Fast Track scheme for foreign workers. The agreement aims to simplify the process and allows all sectors in the Faroese labour market faster access to work permits for nationals coming from countries outside of Europe. The agreement was enforced on 18th November 2021 and is applicable as long as the unemployment rate is below 3.5 %. The Faroese Government can also decide to annul the agreement, as a whole or for sectors of the industry.
