For employers

Have you found a highly qualified person abroad for your company or university who you would like to employ on a long-term basis? 

That's really great and we would be very happy to support you and your future employee in this important phase free of charge!

Moving to a new country is very enriching, but of course also brings many questions. The staff of the Welcome Service Tirol is there for your employee during this challenging time, warmly and competently! No matter whether it is a question about the residence permit, the apartment search, registration requirements, the e-card, the job search of the partner, contacts with the authorities or other topics, we are available and assist your employee with a lot of commitment! Either we can provide the relevant information or support directly ourselves or we check which service center or service provider can help most effectively.

However, in order for your employee to feel comfortable in Tyrol in the long term and to really want to stay, it is not only important to provide good support in terms of organization. It is of particular relevance that your employee quickly finds contacts and also has nice people around him/her outside of working hours. For this purpose, the Welcome Service Tirol regularly organizes events, where people who moved here from abroad can get to know Tirol, get important information, but above all have the opportunity to meet new people (for more information on our future and already held events, see Events). 

Please do not hesitate to contact us - if you wish, we will get in touch with your employee while she or he is still abroad. This way, urgent questions can be answered as soon as possible and we can contribute to a successful start in Tyrol!

But also if you have any questions yourself, we are always at your disposal! We look forward to hearing from you!
