A new service has been launched making it easier to hire foreign professionals to work in Latvia

  • 2023-04-11

Global HR company Deel, which has been operating in Latvia for over a year now, expands its immigration service on-platform, giving more companies the ability to hire and move teams to other countries in the world. Latvia is one of 25 countries around the world in which this service will be available with the aim of making the process of immigration and hiring foreigners simpler and easier for businesses.

Immigration laws and processes vary by country, making it time-consuming to find the correct visa for any given worker. As a result, companies often take on the lengthy and nuanced visa application process themselves, or skip global hiring all together.

“Overall, Deel saves us around two to four months to hire and relocate in any country where we don’t own an entity,” said Luka Besling, HR Manager at Revolut. “Through Deel, we’ve been able to hire more than 150 people so far, and we have also relocated more than 10 employees to countries like the UAE and Switzerland.” 

Deel enables businesses to flexibly hire employees and contractors in countries where they don’t have an entity while handling all the onboarding, compliance, payroll, HR, and more. Now, Deel can also sponsor and handle the whole visa process in 25 countries, to help companies hire with a fraction of the time, cost, and resources.

“As the go-to global HR company, it’s no surprise that immigration support is one of our most requested services in Latvia and in the world” said Liina Laas, Head of  Expansion for Central and Eastern Europe at Deel, “I’m thrilled that Deel Immigration makes these services available to any company hiring through us, on the same platform where they’re already working.”  

Unlike other immigration services, Deel:

- Takes on all the responsibility of sponsoring a visa and hiring the employee

- Speeds up the process with in-house immigration lawyers 

- Offers unmatched flexibility with coverage in 25+ countries (Including: Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Chile, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Mauritius, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, South Korea, Spain, Saudi Arabia, United States, United Arab Emirates)

- Provides 100% visibility over immigration management within one simple dashboard
