Immigration

Immigration is at the heart of relocation. All international HR managers need access to the best possible immigration advice to keep their organisations and their employees compliant. It is essential that companies have up-to-date advice on obtaining immigration work permits to grow their businesses. Read more

Immigration is a hot topic all over the world. The political agenda is often dominated by illegal immigration news stories. This can influence public opinion and impact the interpretation of immigration statistics - which is clearly bad news for the business agenda. Growing companies are increasingly looking to expand into emerging markets and need sound immigration advice. They equally want to obtain visas for their global talent and project teams wanting to work in popular destinations in Europe, USA, Australia or Canada.

Understanding the immigration status of global employees is critical. Whether you are managing your organisation's international relocation, sending employees on an overseas assignment to further their career, or even supporting the growth of your business through international recruitment, you need access to the facts about immigration, the latest immigration news, help interpreting new immigration rules and an understanding of which immigration issues are at the top of the agenda.

Re:locate is here to help. Our directory of business immigration experts and up-to-date articles and videos – all of which focus on immigration requirements, law and strategies – will point you in the right direction. Read less
