Know the countries where it is easier to obtain a work permit

Receiving permission to work is one of the fundamental elements for all those who reach a new country. In a large part of the world the process for the request and approval of work permits for recent arrivals can be delayed for an eternity; however, there are other that ease the procedure incredibly.

For example, the Netherlands grant residence for a year to an innovative foreign businessman who decides to open his business there and offer employment to local citizens. The Dutch even place the businessman with a tutor to help him grow his business quickly. At the end of the year, the businessman will be able to  request a standard independent work permit.

In Panama, if you are a citizen of one of the 50 “friendly nations”, according to the Panamanian government, will be able to begin working in the country immediately. In the Seychelles Islands, it’s only necessary to have a passport to begin working and, at the end of just five years, he could request citizenship.

Meanwhile, in Cambodia, it will be simple to obtain a work visa just by presenting a project for opening a small business and then renew it as many times as necessary. These quick examples show that with an innovative idea and a little creativity it’s possible to work without delay in any of the countries we’ve told you about here.
