Workplace Application:

With increasing globalization of businesses, the ability to ensure staff mobility for short term assignments is of paramount importance but is often at odds with the growing political trend of protection of the resident labor market.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the confines of business visitor routes and the permissible activities that do not require a working visa.
  • Understand the cultural challenges and the steps that can be taken to minimize the risks.
  • Identify the most appropriate structure for global short-term assignments and implement a process for streamlining the business visitor approvals process.
  • Identify tax issues that could arise as a result of global short-term assignments.
