this is the right granted to exercise a professional activity on the soil of the host country;
it constitutes an authorization to enter the territory (subject to validation by the border authorities);
this is the right to stay in the territory for a long period (usually the minimum is 3 months of stay);
The 22.55 team is positioned as your privileged interlocutor to define the appropriate immigration strategy, and allows you to understand the stages, conditions and deadlines.
The professional immigration procedures to be carried out depend entirely on the country of destination, and vary greatly from one destination to another. They may be limited to a single and rapid authorization request step, on-site regularization, or involve long and tedious procedures for prior local authorization, legalization and post-arrival registrations.
Some countries offer a wide variety of work permit categories, making it possible to adapt the migration strategy to the employee’s profile, the characteristics of the assignment and the legal framework envisaged. Others, on the other hand, only offer a handful of categories of permits, effectively excluding any immigration situation that does not qualify for it.
Our experts ensure your “compliance” with the local law of destination with a permanent concern for risk prevention, whatever the particularities of the planned movement.
As a specialist in professional immigration procedures, we have a vast network of international partners, local experts in immigration procedures in their country.
With their help, the 22.55 team will work with you to determine the procedure to be followed adapted to the situation of your employee on the move. We then centralize the procedures and carry out the various formalities for you, whether in the country of departure (for example, legalizing documents or obtaining visas) or in the country of arrival (for example, obtaining work permit or local registration).
Of course, we also carry out a legal watch and keep you informed of legislative developments that could impact the renewal procedures, if they are required.
For example, we can, with the help of certified local experts, assist you in:
In general, a distinction must be made between stays according to their duration, and the commonly accepted floor between short and long stays is 90 days. There are exceptions because, here again, States remain sovereign in this area. However, wherever the line is, the procedures will be different and most of the time more complex for longer stays.
Therefore, it is important to determine from the opening of the immigration file the precise duration of stay in the country of destination. It is sometimes practical to proceed by way of the short stay but in the medium term this solution can prove to be counterproductive, if for example the employee has to extend their stay abroad to complete a mission which ends later than initially anticipated.
Likewise, if a stay should slightly exceed the 90-day maximum, it may be interesting to consider the possibility of reducing it by a few days in order to benefit from any facilities open for short-term stays in the intended destination.
By entrusting these questions to 22.55, you guarantee yourself the most favorable status for your employee and for your company.
It is also crucial to keep in mind that the so-called “business” visa does not generally authorize productive professional activity. These visas allow one to attend meetings, meet teams or clients, but assume to remain in a relatively “passive” role, not contributing to the productive activity of the company.
In principle, any stay of less than 90 days during which the employee will exercise a productive activity must be seen as subject to a work permit, because so-called business visas (with or without exemption depending on nationality) do not allow “work” in a foreign country.
Russia is an exception in this area since it reserves its “work” visas for collaborators employed under local contracts, and allows foreigners paid in their country of origin to reside on Russian soil for long periods of time. “business” visas.
It is therefore crucial, even for short stays, to ask the question of the need to obtain a work permit when the person “works” in a country other than that of their nationality. The consequences of a failure to do so, for example during an on-site inspection by local authorities or an accident, can prove to be much more important than the relative constraint of appropriate upstream immigration procedures.
Our expertise allows you to quickly ensure the specific requirements of the file and its qualification by the authorities. The support of our team of specialists ensures the success of your international mobility strategy.
Finally, it is important to remember that immigration has an impact on labor law, social security and payroll issues. It is for this reason that you must also analyze all these subjects in parallel with the immigration procedures.
Coupled with your social and fiscal requirements, immigration therefore appears to be a key factor in the success of your mobility.
It is therefore essential to call on an international mobility specialist to advise you and help you carry out the procedures best suited to your needs, your requirements and the particular situation of the employee.
