GLOBAL VISAS, WORK PERMITS & RESIDENCY

In order to ensure full compliance with immigration regulations worldwide, companies should determine if their employees will need special permissions to travel, work and/or live in any destination country. Please contact our global team for an assessment prior to making any travel arrangements, offering international job assignments, or supporting residency applications.

Business Visas

Business Visas allow short-term visits in the destination country for the primary purpose of performing non-productive activities, such as attending business meetings and conferences, negotiating contracts, making sales calls, participating in trainings or seminars and taking look-see trips. To demonstrate the legitimacy of their business trip, travelers should have a round-trip air ticket and maintain residence and employment outside of the country. They should not receive compensation within the host country other than for travel related expenses. Some travelers may need to show proof of health insurance as well as proof of sufficient funds during their stay in the country. Depending on the applicant’s citizenship, many countries offer visa-waivers or business visas upon arrival. Those individuals requiring a Business Visa prior to travel will need to submit an application at the Embassy or Consulate in the applicant’s home country or in their country of current valid residence.

Work Permits

Every country is unique and has its own processes and requirements for issuing work authorization to foreign workers. There are often multiple work permit categories for each country based on corporate and individual qualifications, as well as on duration and type of assignment. Some countries require the host company to register and obtain sponsorship licenses, quota allocations or online accounts before being permitted to sponsor work permits. The initial work permit is typically issued by the local immigration or labor authorities and may include a local labor market test. Once the work permit is approved, the foreign worker may then be required to secure an entry visa at the consulate in their home country. Upon arrival in the host country, the employee will need to complete any required arrival procedures, such as registration and application for residence permits. Processing times vary greatly and are subject to change at any time. Please contact our global team for a consultation on the work permit requirements for specific destination countries.

Permanent Residency

Permanent residency is not offered to foreign nationals in every country. The requirements to qualify and the process involved to secure permanent residency status can be complicated and lengthy depending on the country. Please contact our global team for individualized assessments.
