Visa or work visa
Visa or work visa is a document issued generally by the consular representation a country has abroad. It is previously approved, which enables the entry and stay of foreigners in the territory of that country.
This issued visa is, in a certain way, a legal code that will make it possible for a foreigner to stay in a country for both a determined period and conditions that will allow them to work, in the case of work visa.

When is it necessary to apply for a visa or work visa?
In most cases, the reasons for a visa or work visa issuing are work, academic or tourist reasons. Additionally, there are other reasons which are less common.
Anytime your travel abroad, we recommend verifying the necessity of issuing a visa in terms of the destinations, reason, and duration of the stay. In case of not meeting the required procedures, it is possible the entry to the destination country could be denied.
For example, a person with a Schengen visa will be able to limitlessly travel to all the countries that signed this agreement as long as the documents are valid. For citizens with a Schengen visa only, the visa will become the essential document to legally stay in the country in case the person would like to work in Latin American countries.

Frequently asked questions about visa or work visa
Although they might seem to be the same, it is necessary to make a difference between both aspects because it might lead to misunderstandings.
The validity of the visa or work visa refers to the date in which the visa will expire and will no longer be valid.
On the other hand, the duration refers to the maximum period we will be able to stay in the destination.
There are countries in which the validity of the visa could be 5 years. However, the maximum stay allowed for each entry will be 30 days, for example.
One of the most important matters in the visa is the number of entries they allow to the destination.
In general, we can differentiate visas of one, two or multiple entries:
- Single-entry visa: This work visa allows the entry to the country for a single time. In case of departure, it will be necessary to issue another visa to enter again in a regularized way.
- Two-entry visa: It is similar to the single-entry work visa. The difference is that we are able to enter two times if the entries are carried out during the period of validity of the visa.
- Multiple-entry visa: It allows the limitless entry to a country. Both this and the two-entry visa must be done during the validity period.
