We understand that workforce mobility is not as simple as booking a flight and securing a visa.
Moving to an unfamiliar surrounding can be overwhelming. To ensure it goes smoothly, we offer a range of services to reduce the stress of the international relocation process.

Our Relocation Services
Policy Administration and Counselling
For companies expanding to new territories, it can be both an exciting and daunting time.
For your employees, this is multiplied. The prospect of international career development can be offset by fear of the unknown.
Common questions your employees may ask :
Is it the right time to move location for work?
What expenses are covered by my corporate package?
Will there be an increased cost of living?
Have I accounted for all the costs and whether they are covered by my company policy?
Will I be able to find a suitable school for my children?
Will my spouse find work?
No two individuals will have the exact same concerns, fears and queries. This is a vulnerable period for your staff and requires a personalised approach that understands and supports them.
Airswift provide pre-assignment counselling and ongoing guidance throughout the process. This includes thorough assignment cost estimates and projections to help you and your employee navigate their relocation.
For organisations without a formalised relocation policy, we can provide market intelligence to help develop a competitive package to attract, retain and mobilise the best talent.
Once the transferring employee(s) have been identified, Airswift can support with a range of essential services in their origin country.
These could include property and tenancy management, shipment of household goods or vehicle and pet transportation.
Preparation for the move can never start too early. We can coordinate language and inter-cultural training or family and spousal/partner support services to help your employee pre-acclimatise.
Localisation and Destination Services
Destination services ensure that your employee can arrive and thrive successfully in their new location. This could include a gesture as simple as an airport welcome or a detailed market orientation.
Orientation can incorporate a variety of needs from finding real estate, local services and essentials (e.g. supermarkets, churches or doctors). It could also include school/accommodation search, furniture rental and purchase assistance and settling-in services.
Our personalised approach ensures that each employee is relocated with minimum disruption to ensure they can adapt quickly to their new surroundings.
Travel, Rotation and Flight Management Services
Airswift have offices in over 50 countries and this provides us with extensive knowledge of international travel. Our scale also provides access to cost saving opportunities through our travel partners.
Host Country and Project Site Safety and Security Training

A fully integrated outsourced Global Employment Organisation can manage employment, compensation and benefits, immigration, payroll and tax for clients.
Our Global Mobility specialists are trained to understand the local tax, licencing and social security requirements of their region. We also engage professional advisors to ensure that the advice provided is 100% accurate.
Services provided include the coordination of medical insurance, benefits, health screenings and inoculations.
When clients use Airswift as an outsourced Global Employment Organisation, they work with one contact for all enquiries. This increases efficiency, ensures any issues are dealt with quickly, and without the need to engage multiple stakeholders
When temporary assignments come to an end, we provide a range of repatriation services to ensure nothing is missed.
A well planned and implemented repatriation process can reduce the likelihood of your employees leaving at the end of their assignment. This helps you retain knowledge and expertise while reducing the cost of hiring programmes.
The process can involve the following:
Management of departure
Medical and school records transfer
De-registration from local authorities
Bank account closure
Accommodation lease cancellation
These seemingly small tasks can build up and create stress for employees without effective management.
