Most countries require a special visa if you are planning to work there. However, it is important to note that many countries in Europe are a part of the Schengen area, a zone where 26 European countries, abolished their internal borders, for the free and unrestricted movement of people. This means that if you are from a country that is a part of the Schengen zone, you may not require a visa to work in another country in the same zone. Our local site managers and their assistants can help you find what the regulations are for their specific location.
