Immigration support for hiring expats in Cape Verde via a PEO

If your business objectives are related to hiring expatriate personnel in Cape Verde, there are some things you need to consider, from the peculiarities of immigration procedure in Tanzania to documents required to get a work permit, and local payroll for foreign citizens.

If your company is hiring or planning to hire expats in Cape Verde, an in-country PEO employment post immigration might be a viable alternative to incorporation. A global PEO company will guide you through every step of immigration procedure in Cape Verde and render a ‘no entity hiring’ after visa or permit receipt.

For many years Acumen International has been hiring and payrolling our clients’ expatriates for both short- and long-term projects. If you need to legally hire and pay the expatriates in Cape Verde, we can help you. Regardless of your business objectives and timelines, Acumen International can arrange immigration and work permit support for hiring your expats in full legal compliance with local labor legislation after the permit has been issued.

Acumen’s ‘work permit and hiring expats through a Global PEO’ solution is designed for:

  1. employer companies like yourself that want to relocate their selected expats to Cape Verde
  2. individuals that have an employer that is ready to finance their immigration and foreign employment in the Cape Verde
  3. the service is mainly used by companies hiring highly skilled personnel to fill some top positions in Cape Verde

Note: Having a single provider that would sponsor a work permit or visa on your behalf and then employs expats in Cape Verde, minimizes risks of visa rejection. In addition, it takes the hassle associated with immigration procedure off your head.

Unlike other global Professional Employer Organizations, Acumen International can provide extra benefits in addition to work permit support in Cape Verde. This includes medical insurance, housing, office rent, mobile phone and car provision to meet-and-greet, dependents relocation, etc.
