Global Immigration & Cross Border Transfers

Ellis Immigration Law represents companies and employees with global immigration matters worldwide.  When dealing with global assignments, work and residency may need to be obtained in a foreign country.  We focus on the global migration needs of employees and companies for assessing eligibility for foreign visas and navigating the steps to obtain them.  We can also help companies and managers manage the cost of transferring an employee abroad with high quality services and rates that are lower than a much larger firm.


The firm focuses on providing and obtaining high-quality advice and services for U.S. companies starting up or doing business in globalized countries in the following areas:

  • Work permits
  • Visas
  • Business Visas
  • Non-Traditional Assignments
  • Short-term visas

We handle both resident and non-resident visas globally and partner with selective and highly qualified in-country attorneys around the world.  By working independently, we work with local counsel best suited to our clients’ needs.

Country Experience

Our country list includes India, Brazil, Estonia, Mexico, Norway, Spain, U.K. and many African countries.  We have been active in the global immigration field for more than eight years.  We are members of the AILA Global Migration Section and the Global Human Resources Consortium.
