Live Webinar | Essentials for Success in India: Employment and Business Visas
4 December @ 11:30am IST / 2:00pm SGT/CST
While down from its all-time high of 11 percent, India’s GDP continues to grow at 5+ percent annually – making it one of the fastest growing major economies in the world. Currently the sixth largest in the world, many economists predict India’s economy to take the #2 spot by 2030, surpassed only by China.
To support the business growth and attract foreign investment and talent, Indian immigration policy has undergone significant improvements over the recent years. Greater use of e-visas, longer validity periods, and liberalization of permissible activities benefit international businesses operating in India.
These developments and more are solidifying India as one of the key international business destinations – both now and for the future.
Join Newland Chase as we take a deep dive into business immigration to India in this can’t-miss live webinar for businesses operating in, or interested in, India. We’ll cover the essentials of residence and work authorization for foreign nationals working in India, as well as the latest developments in business travel and visas for foreign business people.
