Global Business Immigration Handbook

Editor: Sergio R. Karas, B.A., J.D.


In the new worldwide competitive environment, Human Resources professionals are forced to expand their horizons beyond the local labour market in order to reach and attract talented and highly skilled workers for their organizations.

HR professionals must be up to date in connection with corporate transfers and hiring foreign workers, as they are called upon to deal with visa and work permit issues on a regular basis. They need to know how to bring workers into Canada, and how to send them overseas, with the appropriate documents to avoid dire consequences (fines, detention, deportation, etc.).


The Global Business Immigration Handbook serves as a primary reference guide to alert the practitioner to potential difficulties in obtaining documents, timelines, procedures, general criteria and how to avoid costly pitfalls. The contributing authors to this publication are amongst the world's most prominent corporate immigration lawyers from around the world.
