The laws regarding business involvement with overseas companies or workers are ever changing. Our highly trained business immigration team pride themselves on keeping fully informed at all times on any developments within the legislations so you don’t have to.
We can assist you with all aspects of business immigration, from documentation requirements to hire foreign national, procedures to be followed if investing abroad, to sponsorship formalities if transferring an existing employee to an overseas branch of your business.
There are strict guidelines that must be followed in any case of immigration which carry severe fines and penalties if you fail to comply. Please ensure that before you make any decisions independently you enlist the expertise of a professional.
Our team of business immigration lawyers can guide you through these confusing regulations and continue to keep you adhering to all necessary legal rules.
