Mobility Planning Advisory Services

We understand the difficulty inherent in sending employees on cross-border postings, both for short term and long term assignments. It is our belief that strategic analysis and pre-planning can greatly facilitate and simplify the process.

Consequently, our Mobility Planning Advisory Service (MPAS) entails carrying out a survey of potential target countries and assembling information as to the visa requirements for each country. This allows managers and executives to have a pre-understanding of visa requirements before making a decision regarding a short-term or long-term placement in a different country.
