Visas or work visa
A visa or work visa is a document generally issued by the consular representations of a country abroad, previously approved in order to allow the entry and stay of foreigners in the national territory of that country.
This issued visa is, in a way, the legal code that will make possible the stay of a foreigner in a country for a determined period and conditions that will allow him/her to work, in the case of a work visa.

When will it be necessary to apply for a visa or work visa?
In most of the occasions the reasons for the issuance of a work visa or visa are work, academic or tourist issues. There are also other less common reasons.
Whenever traveling abroad, we recommend verifying the need for a visa depending on the destination, the reason and the length of stay, since failure to comply with the required formalities may result in denial of entry into the destination country.
For example, a person with a Schengen visa will be able to travel in all the countries that have signed this agreement unlimitedly as long as his or her documents are in order. For citizens with Schengen visa only, for example, if they would like to work in Latin American countries, the visa will become the fundamental document to be able to stay legally.

Frequently asked questions about expatriate taxation
What is the difference between the validity of a visa and its duration?
Although they may seem to be the same thing, it is necessary to differentiate between the two aspects, as this can sometimes lead to misunderstandings.
The validity of the work visa refers to the date on which the visa will expire and expire.
The duration, on the other hand, stipulates the maximum period we can stay in the destination country.
There are countries where the validity of the visa may be, for example, 5 years, and yet the maximum stay allowed at each entry will be, for example, 30 days.
What is the difference in the number of visa entries?
One of the important issues with visas is the number of entries allowed into the target country.
In general, we can differentiate between single-entry, two-entry and multiple-entry visas:
- Single entry visa: This work visa will allow entry into the country only once. In case of exit, it will be necessary to reissue another visa to re-enter in a regularized manner.
- Two-entry visa: similar to the single-entry work visa, with the difference that in this case we will be able to enter twice, as long as it is done within the period of validity of the visa.
Multiple-entry visa: allows unlimited entry into a country, and as in the case of the two-entry visa, they must be made within the period of validity.
