Companies that work in the energy, process, or infrastructure fields have to go where the work is. While your business may be headquartered in one city, it probably seeks work on a regional or even global scale. Certain areas simply have more pressing demands for infrastructure services, energy companies and related industries, like process. If your company secures a contract in a foreign country, you will need to immediately start planning for the project. Logistics concerns, such as staffing and supply lines, are often the most difficult when you company is working on a project in a distant land.
Moving any number of staff or contractors to a new location requires careful planning, attention to detail, and an understanding of requirements. Each country has different rules and laws for international workers. In some cases, you will need work permits. Generally, work visas will be required. There are also international tax considerations when it comes to payroll. Mistakes or oversights on government forms or with planning could cost a lot of money and time to correct later. Working with a company that offers professional Africa relocation services could be the best way to move forward.
An outside company should be able to handle all the details, from arranging for travel to helping staff acclimate to the new location. In terms of relocation, Africa is often outside the service area of businesses. Some companies offer relocation, but only to the biggest cities. Others may limit their services to North America or Europe. Africa is a massive continent with over 30 countries, each with many resources and opportunities. Your best option is to work with a company that has experience working in Africa and an established network there.
