Easily hire expats 

Expats are often highly skilled hardworking people. They are highly sought after and many companies would like to have an expat on their team.

As your Employer of Record, we’ll handle all the necessary paperwork and legal requirements for hiring and paying employees in a foreign country.

Furthermore, our team of experienced specialists guides you through the process of obtaining a visa or work permit for your employee. As a certified sponsor of the European immigration authorities, Parakar can provide a shorter processing time by offering fast-track services for visa and work permit applications. With our expertise, we have successfully processed hundreds of work visa cases for employees worldwide, ensuring a smooth and efficient process.
