You will probably be required to apply for a visa and/or work permit prior to your departure to the country of posting. Every Country office has different requirements which will be explained in detail by your HRLD HR Officer.
You will apply for visas in your home country or on arrival in-country. If either of these options is not possible the HR Officer will help you identify an alternative embassy/modality where you can apply for a visa and will assist you throughout the visa process.
For visa application procedures, download per-departure packet 1a or 1b here
The HRLD Officer will provide you with the following documents before you submit your visa application:

  • Dummy return flight reservation from/to place of assignment  
  • Mission Order
  • Invitation Letter

Any additional documents requested by the embassy where you’ll be submitting your application.
