In today’s global economy, companies need to move international executives as well as key employees efficiently to visit their offices in other countries. They must also be prepared that these visits may turn into short and longer term work assignments.
In this webinar, Osborne Clarke & Weaver Schlenger Mazel (WSM), a leader in business immigration law and compliance co-present a panel of four seasoned immigration attorneys who will provide a dashboard to help navigate the nuanced differences between what qualifies as permissible short term business visits and what triggers work permit requirements in the U.S. and in Europe.
We will cover the following points:
• An overview of key visa options in the U.S. and major European countries
• Business visitor requirements and tips for border entry
• The Schengen visa
• Common telecommuting scenarios
This webinar is geared towards in-house lawyers and professionals in HR, recruiting and staffing who would like to expand their knowledge on the topic of immigration.
