Work visa

What is a work visa?

A work visa is a legal document issued by a government to allow foreign nationals to move to and work in a specific country for a designated period of time. They are subject to the rules and requirements of each issuing country but generally require that applicants can provide documentation such as a job offer letter and proof of qualifications.

The duration of a work visa varies and can range from a few months to several years, depending on the nature of the employment and the policies of the host country. In some cases, work visas may be renewable or convertible to other types of visas, such as permanent residency.

It’s crucial for both employers and employees to stay informed about the specific requirements and regulations related to work visas. Non-compliance can lead to legal consequences, including deportation and future restrictions on entering the country.

To manage visa rules and regulations, it’s best to seek the support of a global Employer of Record (EOR) solution such as Multiplier. Streamlining the process of obtaining work visas, this enables employees to get hired in a particular country without employers needing to go through the process of setting up a legal entity.
