To even the most experienced HR manager, trying to navigate this world of work permit requirements can be a daunting task. Doing so is essential, however. Because different job roles require different permits which set different restrictions on work, your choice of country could have an important effect on whether it’s worth your business sending an employee abroad in the first instance.
Choosing and completing relevant work permit applications is your next challenge. Once your team member has been given work authorisation and has begun their assignment overseas, it’s important to ensure their permit is still the most relevant to their situation. In the UK, for example, you may need to seek a transition from a Tier 2 ICT to Tier 2 General visa .If your employee's work permit requirements have changed, their license could even be working against them. The risks are expensive, protracted legal costs for you and your expatriate team member.
