Visa, Work Permit & Immigration Support in Botswana

Looking to hire expatriate personnel for international assignments in Botswana? This is a loaded process to go through, including finding ways to:

  • Stay compliant with Botswanan immigration laws
  • Have all the necessary documents for work permit sponsorship
  • Effectively manage employment and payroll when your team has their visas

Compounding the issue is that a lot of expat workers generally go into Botswana to handle shorter projects. So it doesn’t make much sense to set up your own subsidiary to arrange local payroll for your employees. Instead, you may want to take a look at a simpler solution.

Immigration Support with Expat Hiring via Global PEO in Botswana

For those that want to hire and pay expats in Botswana, that means enlisting a global PEO that includes work permit support. This saves your company the headache of trying to incorporate in a new country. Your new PEO partner will provide all the guidance you need to handle Botswanan immigration procedures to get your team their visas/permits. After that, they can also help with onboarding and payroll for your expat team.

Acumen International has provided this service for our clients’ expatriate personnel in Botswana, both for short- and long-term projects. We offer a compliant and fast way to get your team on the ground and working. No matter your timeline or business goals, Acumen International offers end-to-end work permit support and ensures full compliance with local labor legislation in Botswana and 189 other countries.

Curious as to the best matches for Acumen’s work permit and hiring expats through a Global PEO’ solution? These include:

  • Employer companies that plan to relocate, hire, and utilize expat workers in Botswana.
  • Seasoned professionals that have already found an employer to finance their immigration and foreign employment, but just need to simplify the process.
  • Businesses planning to hire highly-skilled expats and send them to fill top positions in Botswana.

A side note, you may not realize that by partnering with a single provider to handle both expat employment and work permit sponsorship, it’s a lot less likely your visas will be rejected. Our global immigration support will also save you time from trying to understand and navigate the different international rules and regulations.

5 Benefits of Acumen’s Global PEO with Immigration Support for Hiring Foreign Talent

  • Medical insurance
  • Office rent
  • Dependant relocation
  • Housing
  • Mobile phone/car provision for meetings

Attention: we are not an immigration service! We do not provide a work permit and immigration support as a standalone solution to individuals looking to find jobs overseas.
