Business visas are a key component of a globally mobile workforce. Business visas permit visitors to enter countries for non-work business activities – typically business meetings, seminars, conferences, trade shows, limited sales activities, contract negotiations, and some supervisory activities. However, business visas are not a substitute for work authorizations.
In many countries, an increased emphasis on immigration and illegal working is giving rise to increased workplace audits and inspections, with particular scrutiny on the activities performed by employees while on business visas.
Our Business Visa services are designed to keep both your company and business travelers legally compliant while allowing you to quickly and efficiently mobilize your employees for business trips anywhere in the world.
