Brisa background image

In an era where Human Resources and Global Mobility departments grapple with escalating travel compliance challenges, Brisa emerges as a strategic ally. The expansion of laws and regulations surrounding immigration amplifies the workload for these departments. Moreover, the active enforcement of the European Posted Worker Directive mandates precise registrations to avoid severe penalties. Brisa is purposefully designed to tackle these challenges, offering a secure online environment where travel managers and travelers can effortlessly assess travel requirements and apply for necessary documents.

The complexities of travel management

The landscape of travel and immigration management for organizations involved in frequent international business travel is complex, multifaceted, and often challenging. This complexity arises from several key factors.

1. Diverse immigration laws and regulations

Every country has its own set of immigration laws and regulations, which can change frequently and without much notice. Organizations must stay updated on visa requirements, work permits, residency rules, and other legal necessities for each country where they operate. This requires a deep understanding of local laws and often assistance from local legal experts.

2. Compliance requirements

Ensuring compliance with both home country and host country laws is crucial. This includes adhering to tax regulations, employment laws, and social security norms. Non-compliance can lead to legal consequences, financial penalties, and reputational damage.

3. Cultural and language barriers

Operating across different countries involves navigating various cultural norms and language barriers. Misunderstandings or misinterpretations can lead to non-compliance or inefficiencies in processes.

4. Variation in processes and timeframes

The processing time and procedural requirements for visas and work permits can vary greatly between countries. Some processes might be straightforward and quick in one country but lengthy and complex in another. This variability can make planning and resource allocation challenging.

5. Employee well-being and adaptation

Ensuring the well-being of employees who travel frequently is essential. This includes providing support for cultural adaptation, managing travel-related stress, and helping with accommodations and local orientation.

6. Data management and privacy

Managing the personal data of employees across different jurisdictions, each with its own data protection laws (like GDPR in the EU), adds another layer of complexity. Companies need robust systems to handle this data securely and in compliance with various legal standards.

7. Technological integration

Leveraging technology for managing travel and immigration processes is essential but can be complex. Integrating different systems for travel booking, expense management, visa processing, and compliance tracking requires sophisticated IT solutions.

8. Changing political and economic landscapes

Political shifts, economic changes, and events like pandemics can abruptly alter travel and immigration norms, requiring organizations to quickly adapt their strategies and operations.

9. Cost management

Balancing the cost of international travel and assignments, including immigration fees, travel expenses, and accommodation, while maintaining efficiency and compliance, is a significant challenge.

10. Risk management

Identifying and mitigating risks associated with international travel, such as health risks, political instability, or natural disasters, is crucial for the safety and security of traveling employees.

Navigating this complex landscape requires a strategic approach, often involving specialized travel and immigration management services, legal counsel, and technology solutions that can adapt to the dynamic nature of global business travel.
