When traveling to a foreign country, you may be required to obtain a business visa or travel visa. Visa requirements vary depending on the purpose of your trip, such as tourism, business, or employment, and the country you will be visiting.
Work permit requirements also vary by country and trip purpose. It is often the responsibility of the employer, not the employee, to apply for a work permit. Permits are usually issued for a specific worker and a specific job.
