Depending on the country of origin, it can be as quick as a few weeks but also take a few months. Our specialist assigned to your company will provide insights and advise on timing in the event that you have potential candidates to hire. i.e. If you are considering two candidates, one from Egypt and the other, India, our specialist would advise on which case would be faster depending on their local embassy.
