Most of our business is with the developed countries -recently we have done a lot of work for France, Israel, Italy and South Africa. But it is always more interesting when less developed countries are involved. Recently we have had a requirement for a means of employing expatriates in New Caledonia. We assumed it would be difficult but we received the response .. “I do confirm that it is doable. Our partner firm has the structure to provide the work permits and employment contract.
The process is simple. We need:
It takes two months to get the authorisation of work and then they need to apply for an entry visa at the French embassy of their own country. The delay depends on each country.
When they come into New Caledonia, they have to go for a medical visit and then they get their authorisation to work validated for one month to three years.”
