Due to the increasing number of multinational companies expanding their operations in Latin America, the rate of foreign citizens and Latin American companies moving within the region has been growing rapidly; with that in mind, it is important to observe that there are restrictions for the entry of foreign citizens in some countries.
Therefore, when making the decision of transferring an employee from a home to a host country, it is important to have the entire transfer process well planned and mapped out, which includes, in no small part, checking legal requirements necessary to make the transfer effective in a timely manner..
Requisites, procedures and timelines will most likely vary according to the country of destination. Therefore, a successful transfer will depend on good advisory services, both in the country of origin, where it will be necessary to provide all the documentation required for the transfer process, and in the country of destination, so as to provide the paperwork needed to legalize the expatriate’s stay for the duration of the assignment.
HRS’s affiliates are apt to handle these issues, ensuring that both the company and the expatriate meet the legal requirements established by the government of each host nation. Our specialist consultants are able to coordinate the Visa process and offer detailed reports during the course of each step, until the final issuance of the visa.
