While Make in India envisages manufacturing in India using Indian resources and workers, international players sometimes need access to machinery, technology and technicians from abroad to set up their operations in India. The soft skills and expertise that foreign technicians bring to India also bring in best practices and the ability to run new processes as well as to use new technology.

A company in India can hire an expatriate either as an employee or a consultant/adviser. The duration of employment may be short or long. The most challenging part of the process is compliance with various immigration regulations, which sometimes are misconstrued thus leading to small hassles or even deportation.

There are basically two types of work-related visas, namely, business visas and employment visas.

Business visas are for those who make business-related trips to India. To be eligible for a business visa, the applicant should be a person of assured financial standing, with expertise in the field of the intended business. The applicant should not be visiting India to conduct money lending or petty trading or for full-time employment. The applicant will also have to comply with other requirements, such as payment of tax liabilities.
