According to authorities, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MoHRE) has mandated companies to allocate 20 percent of visa quotas to diverse nationalities to foster workplace diversity.

It has also stated that companies can hire individuals from any nationality once they achieve a 20 percent diversity rate.

The MoHRE recommends companies hire employees from diverse nationalities to meet diversity requirements, stating this practice applies universally and is not specific to any particular nationality.
