Expansion to the USA

E-registration or work visa?

If your company wishes to set up a subsidiary abroad, then it faces a variety of challenges. Of course, you want to be able to provide your employees with the best all-around protection, including by securing the best visas for them.

The effort that is needed to obtain visas for employees who perform different tasks and often come from international locations within the group of companies is unfortunately very often underestimated. Even the task of just integrating and coordinating communication between all the relevant visa actors can be very time consuming.

In addition, each visa case must be considered separately so that an individual solution can be found.

If your U.S. company, for example, has an e-registration, then under certain circumstances this cannot be used by all employees equally. You may have to consider a number of different work visas for your international staff depending on their nationality. For certain work visas the first step is to submit an application to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is a process that requires significant additional expenses.

In order to determine the appropriate visa category, you first must determine the purpose of stay and the time that will be spent in the U.S. The nationality, qualifications, and position of your employees also play an important role.

In order to determine the optimal visa category, you must also look at the relationship between time and costs: You must pay equal attention to your application to the USCIS and the U.S. consulate, and staff must be properly prepared for the consulate interview and U.S. border control.
