April 06, 2016


Overseeing global assignments isn’t easy.

Your role can be especially challenging if you have foreign employees in the MINT (Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria, Turkey) and BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) countries.

Immigration in these regions is fraught with constant regulation changes, varying interpretations of regulations, and significant challenges to remaining compliant with federal and local laws. To further complicate these obstacles, many federal governments are now looking to amend immigration regulations as methods of oversight, revenue and labor market protection. Just two weeks ago, India’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) proposed that all foreign national stays be tracked in order to allow for closer monitoring and reduction of visa overstays.

Instead of spending time and effort researching the complex immigration laws of these countries, we created a helpful infographic packed full of tips for harmonizing your global mobility program and immigration compliance. This document will provide planning support for global employers in these rapidly developing nations and their associated compliance risks. Having this information at your fingertips will allow you to focus on improving the immigration experience for your business travelers and relocating employees.
