An applicant who has passed the final selection shall then be issued by the foreign employer an employment offer subject to the acceptance of the applicant. After the applicant has accepted the employment offer, the applicant will need to go through medical and laboratory examinations. CATHARSIS INTERNATIONAL processes all the documentary formalities with the BAIRA. At this point, the required type of visa of the applicant shall also be applied for the worker by the foreign employer.
