The dynamics of the Schengen Zone have evolved significantly. Businesses now face the dual challenge of not only entering the region but also ensuring compliance and lawful operations. The days of standard practices like business trips on tourist visas and waiving the A1 certificate are long gone. Companies today must maintain a myriad of necessary measures to minimise liability risks in the region.

To help businesses navigate these complexities, we've tailored this webinar as part of our 2024 compliance series. It will provide crucial updates and insights into managing immigration risks and compliance within the Schengen Zone.

Led by Asma Bashir, co-founder of Centuro Global and Friederike Ruch, CEO of CONVINUS Global Mobility Solutions, this session will cover:

Key Topics:

90/180 Rule, Stay Limits, and Penalties: Understand the implications of the Schengen Zone's 90-day allowance within 180 days for non-EU travellers. Learn about the latest updates in visa and immigration systems, including the upcoming EES and ETIAS, and their impact on multinational businesses with global mobility programs.

Schengen Visas Overview: With some EU countries experiencing high volumes of visa applications, discover strategies to avoid delays in Schengen visa applications. We'll cover types of visas, requirements, documentation, processing times, permitted business activities, and assessments.

Business Travel and Compliance: Explore how the Schengen Zone may influence business risk assessments, particularly for European and British companies post-Brexit. Gain insights into evolving local policies, legislation, and regulations that could impact your company and employees.
