The 6 Countries Where it is Easy to Get a Work Visa

The most common way to get a visa is via an employer. Many countries allow you to get work permits or even residency visas as long as your company is sponsoring you. However, if you are a self-employed person, it could get difficult to get a visa in some countries. Here are 6 countries where getting a visa is relatively easy.

The Netherlands

The Netherlands is known for the work-life balance that it offers. They are also famed for being flexible with their work visas. Known as the ‘Orientation visa’, it allows permits for a non-EU citizen and has no restrictions. You can stay in the Netherlands and work for a year once you complete your graduation.

You do not need to submit proof of sufficient funds. The visa covers working in temporary positions. These include paid and unpaid internships, starting your own business, and also freelancing.

Netherlands is a member of the European Union, and so, there is a possibility to apply for an EU Blue Card for graduates from business degrees. Here, you need to meet the requirements for minimum salary (€5.4k (US$6.4) per month) and also have professional and educational experience.

Germany

Germany is a part of the European Union and offers visa options for those who have good strong skills and educational background.

The EU Blue Card Scheme offers you a residence and also a work permit. You need to have a professional experience and also an employment contract in Germany. Your minimum salary should be €55,200 (US$65k) per year). This will grant you working rights equal to nationals and also free movement with the card in the Schengen Area.

This will grant you up to four years at a cost of €110 (US$130), and you will be allowed to stay in a non-EU country (up to 12 months) without your residence permit expiring.

If you are looking for a job after a graduate business degree in Germany, you can extend the residence permit for up to 18 months and find a job. If you have returned to your home country, you can get the Job Seeker Visa—a Long-Term Residence Permit that allows you to return to Germany for up to six months and look for a job. All visas in Germany have a price tag of €75 (US$88).

Australia

There are two post-study visas offered by Australia:

  • Graduate Work Stream
  • Post-Study Work Stream

Graduate Work Stream: This allows you to work in Australia for up to 18 months. You need to have a qualification in a sector where there is a skills shortage.

Post-Study Work Stream: This has less requirements, and you can stay between two and four years. It depends on your degree. Both these visas cost AU$1,650.

You can also apply for the Global Talent Independent Program (GTI). This is a specific work and residence visa. You can get it if you are a highly-skilled worker in FinTech, AgTech, Cyber Security, MedTech, Space, and Advanced Manufacturing, Data Science, Energy, and Mining Technology. Your salary should be AU$153,600 and has to be endorsed by a person in the same field who is a New Zealand or Australian citizen.

Singapore

If you have graduated from a higher education program, you will be eligible to apply for a Short-Term Visit Pass. This allows you to stay in the country for 30-90 extra days. After you get the breathing room, you can apply for a Long-Term Visit Pass which will allows you to stay of up to a year in Singapore.

After you get a job in the city-state, you can apply for one among many work visas. The Employment Pass has been designed for managers, professionals, and executives who earn over S$3,900 (US$ 2,800) every month. You should be sponsored by your employer for up to two years.

If you are a ‘mid-skilled’ employee, you can get the S Pass. This allows you to stay of up to two years and you should earn at least S$2,400 (US$1,700) every month.

Canada

Canada has extended the flexible rules for international students as well. This means that if you start programs in the fall, you can complete up to 50% of the programs online and also retain your eligibility for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP).

The PGWP allows you, if you have graduated for a program of at least eight months to apply for a visa of at least nine months. A two-year MBA program may get you a PGWP of three years. You can apply for a permanent residence under the Federal Skilled Worker or Canadian Experience Class programs.

New Zealand

New Zealand has been a popular place for those who want a stress-free visa system. The post-study work visa is for you, if you have completed a relevant degree in the country. You get a period of up to three years and can look for that first job after your MBA.

You can apply for the Skilled Migrant Visa and this gives you permanent residence on the basis of skills shortages in the country.

You can apply for the Entrepreneurship Work Visa offers, and you get a chance to build your business in the country for up to three years. You need to have a business plan, and also NZ$100k to invest. You should also meet a minimum of 120 points on the visa points scale.

* Please that New Zealand is not accepting applications for the Skilled Migrant Visa for now due to the pandemic

    BAJAJ FINANCE LIMITED
