  • Need Information on Travelling in Europe

    I have an employee that I would like to have continue living in the US but work frequently in Europe (France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and others) I know there is a rule where she would only be able to travel 90 days out of 180 and have to come back to the US for 90 consecutive days. Is there any other kind of visa she could obtain that would lengthen her time in Europe or shorten the amount of time she has to spend here? We have an office in the Netherlands but I'm trying to avoid doing the ex-pat thing its so expensive! Any advice is appreciated!

    Thank You

        If your employee is a USC, then you have to contact each country, but usually if an American stays less than 90 or 180 days in the EU (depends on which country) there are no issues. If the person you are employing is a temporary visitor for business to the U.S., they cannot work here as you describe. They need a work visa, usually an H1B or L-1. If your employee is an LPR (green card holder) they cannot be out of the U.S. more than 6 months. Even at 6 months or less, they are risking their residency since if they spend so much time outside the U.S. it appears that they do not actually reside here.

        I am thinking though that your employee is working illegaly for you and needs to travel outside of the U.S. There is nothing you can do for that illegal employee.

          Fleeing America due to fear of Obama Administration? Did you forget what McCain said in his acceptance speech? He wants you to RISE and FIGHT. I say RISE and FIGHT the socialism. Don't be scared.

            She is a US citizen. I dont know exactly which countries but mostly Europe. We would like her to travel more than 90 days so thats the problem. I wasnt sure if there was another alternative besides living over there.

              Hi Kerry and welcome to ILW btw

              Will she actually be working/business travel for the whole 90 days straight in those countries, or would she have any gaps in between?

              There is the schengen visa for most of those countries, but its complicated now. I believe she can stay 90 days in the Schengen countries and then 90 days out and then back in again.
              Some I believe have gone to a non Schengen country so they can wait for the next 90 days. Could that be possible?
              I also wonder if this would be classed as business travel or actually working. Some countries require you to apply for residency before working..each country have their own rules. It is sure complicated.

              I am not sure whether you can extend the visa or not.

              Currently it covers:

              * Austria
              * Germany
              * Belgium
              * Denmark
              * Finland
              * France
              * Greece
              * Iceland
              * Italy
              * Luxemburg
              * Norway
              * Portugal
              * Spain
              * Sweden
              * The Netherlands

                Just remember, the EU countries have rules on working and residence as well. You can have your employee travel there for business, but not live and work there on their version of the visa waiver. Just coming and going every ninety days is not enough. She could get caught doing that. Contact each embassy/consulate of the country you want to live/work in.
