Visa Solutions for Short-Term International Projects

Businesses, employers and HR staff who intend to carry out short-term projects abroad have an array of visas they can apply for. Here are some of the visas below:

Tourist/Visit Visa

Do you have a business running overseas? You can apply for a tourist or visitor visa to travel and see how your business is doing. With a tourist visa, you’re usually permitted to stay for a maximum of 90 days across many countries. You cannot carry out any paid activity while on this visa. To apply for this visa, you’ll need to specify the reason for your trip, show proof that you intend to return to your home country when the visa expires and prove you have sufficient funds to care for yourself. HR managers planning for team or office vacations must also apply for this visa for their team members. 

Business Visa

Employers and HR staff are always on the move around the globe, seeking better opportunities, forging local and international partnerships, attending business meetings, meeting with future investors, learning from industry leaders and scouting for new business locations. All of these require employers and businesspeople to apply for suitable short-term global visas for business meetings. Employers in manufacturing, service-providing and talent acquisition industries usually apply for business visas. Like the tourist visa, you’ll need to show you can pay for living expenses, won’t overstay your permit and why you are visiting the country. This permit is strictly for business related activities.

Short-term Study Visa

Personal development is vital to keep growing and stay ahead of the competition. So, it is not uncommon for HR managers and employers to take time to go overseas and learn. This short-term study visa offers businesspeople insight into the industry practices they can adopt for their businesses. As an academic visitor, your short-term study visa will not exceed 6 months. Employers applying for this visa must present an offer letter from the school they intend to study in, show that they can pay the tuition, bear the living cost, and return to their country after their studies. Schools and academic departments usually sponsor lecturers and professors to get this visa for academic research.

Transit Visa

Sometimes, while travelling, you may need to take connecting flights to get to your desired destination. If you do not have permission to be in the country where you need to take the flight, you may need a transit visa. To get this visa, you’ll have to show the visa for the country you’re headed to and your flight tickets. 

Work Training Visa

Certain countries have visas that permit foreign nationals to visit their country and improve their skills. Employers can also send their staff to visit these countries and undergo professional training in their field for up to six months. Hospitals usually sponsor doctors and other medical professionals to get these visas. 

One of the benefits of these short-term visas is that you do not need to meet too many eligibility criteria to get a visa approval. The limitation, however, is that many of them will not permit employers to carry out paid work. Whether you intend to sponsor your staff to get professional training or want to meet with potential investors abroad, IAS can help. Our immigration solicitors can assess your situation and advise you on the right immigration pathway. They can also help you gather documents proving your eligibility and apply for the visa on your behalf. To speak with any of our immigration champions, call +44 (0)333 305 9375 or use our online contact form, and we will get back to you.

Visa Considerations

Depending on where you are from, you may need to apply for a visa to assess the borders of your country of choice. You’ll also need to meet specific requirements before a visa is granted to you. When you apply for a visa by yourself, you may make omissions or errors that may lead to a visa denial. This is why it is better to leave visa applications for our team of solicitors at Immigration Advice Service. Our lawyers are not just experts in global immigration and business law but also well-versed in visa application intricacies. They can guide you through the process and help you submit a strong visa application.

The Benefits Of Using An Immigration Lawyer For Your Business Needs

You do not have to face immigration hurdles alone. Trust IAS with your visa applications. Below are some of the reasons why you should use our immigration lawyers: 

Proper Documentation

Your documentation is the first thing you need to get correctly when making a visa application. You’ll need to fill out every form with the correct information. You also need to gather and submit the proper documents. The reason why documentation is so crucial is that your documents are what prove you meet the eligibility requirements of the visa you are applying for. If there are errors or mistakes in your papers, there is a high chance you’ll get a visa denial, and all the money and time you spent applying for the visa will be lost. To avoid this, let our immigration lawyers handle your application from start to finish. Our lawyers have been in the game for years and can help you gather the proper documents and complete the necessary forms, ensuring you are aware of the potential pitfalls in the visa application process. 

Compliance with Immigration Rules

The rules regarding immigration are not rigid. They are ever-changing. So, you need to be armed with the correct information and procedure at the time of your application. Knowing these rules can be a handful, as HR managers and employers have other things they worry about. Let our immigration lawyers worry for you; it is their job. They have extensive and current information on procedures and immigration rules. Book a call with them, and they will guide you to ensure you do not break any immigration rules. This is important because breaching immigration rules often comes with dire consequences.
