Hiring Overseas: the Easiest and Hardest Countries to Get Work Permits for Employees

Generally, easier countries to work in are either already popular business destinations or have minimal requirements to get a work permit for your foreign talent. On the other hand, some countries may have long and complex work permit processing periods or be difficult to access due to existing diplomatic issues or international sanctions.

Countries with a high number of ex-pats and low barriers to entry are popular choices for companies looking to send employees abroad. In some cases, working conditions in this country may encourage companies to rethink their traditional hiring process, which can be time-consuming, complex, and expensive. Acumen's Employer of Record Solution is designed to alleviate these burdens by streamlining the work permit securing and business immigration processes for both employer companies and employees so that everyone can benefit from successful international assignments.

The Acumen Global Employer of Record Solution provides work permit securing support, is designed to comply with each country's local business immigration regulations, and is flexible enough to meet the needs of organizations sending employees on short-term or long-term assignments.

3. Guided Support for Business Immigration: Cutting through the Jungle 

When a company decides to hire a foreign employee, filing for immigration is often a complicated, convoluted process. It's easy to make mistakes that could lead to work permit and visa delays or even denials. That's why our Global EOR solution provides clients with information and guidance at every step of the application process to help them succeed in the immigration process.

One of the biggest challenges employers face is navigating the extensive documentation requirements of the immigration process. Employers must collect dozens of documents from their employees, including proof of citizenship or legal residence, previous employment verification, birth certificates, and other supporting documents.

In addition to collecting these documents from their employees, employers must submit several applications to government agencies to sponsor their employees for employment visas. Employers must ensure they submit the correct applications with all supporting documentation on time or risk delaying the application process.

Employer of Record with Immigration Support Is Not an Immigration Service

Our corporate clients can use our global employment B2B services to help sponsor and manage work permits for their foreign employees. It is necessary to clarify a common misconception that our Employer of Record solution caters to the individual international worker.

This is not the case; our business model is tailor-made for corporate clients who can avail of our services when they need to hire ex-pats for their overseas operations.  This means we can sponsor work permits on the companies’ (corporate clients’) behalf so they can officially work with ex-pats whenever and wherever needed.

We need to clarify that a service like Acumen’s global Employer of Record differs significantly from conventional immigration services in function and purpose. Most immigration services are based on providing support for those looking to move abroad and find work. Most of the time, this work is low-skill jobs, and there may be outside factors precipitating the move.

That said, our services are not about connecting international workers to jobs but facilitating global employment needs for employers which already selected candidates. One additional point that bears mentioning is that if a company sponsors a work permit and then employs a person in the country, the chances are higher for them to get a permit.
