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.
