2. Summary

Guernsey is an island off the coast of Normandy in the English Channel that is part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, a British Crown Dependency.

It is the second biggest of the Channel Islands, a collection of islands located north of Saint-Malo and west of the Cotentin Peninsula. The jurisdiction includes eleven parishes on Guernsey, three additional inhabited islands (Herm, Jethou, and Lihou), and several other islets and rocks.

It is not a part of the United Kingdom, albeit the UK manages defense and other areas of foreign affairs. Although the bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey are often referred to as the "Channel Islands," they are neither a constitutional nor political body. Jersey has a different connection to the Crown from Guernsey and the Isle of Man, despite the fact that all are owned by the Queen of the United Kingdom.

The culture of the island is a blend of British and Norman influences, with English as the major language and the Pound sterling as the primary currency. Guernésiais is the traditional local language of the island.

Hiring talented employees in a short span is not an easy task. Partnering with an Employer of Record (EOR) like Rivermate in Guernsey is your best option, giving your organization enough time to focus on other aspects of international expansions like project management and inventory management. The EOR takes care of all the compliance and legal issues while helping you speed up hiring using their knowledge of domestic employment practices and virtual onboarding tools.

10. VISA and work permits

Before you begin arranging your trip to Guernsey, you must ensure that you do not need a visa, since many nations are required to get a travel permit. This document is not referred to as a visa, but rather as a 'leave to enter' or 'leave to stay.' It should be noted that people of the European Economic Area (EEA) have freedom of movement, whilst citizens of other nations do not. You must have a 'leave to enter' permit if you are not from the EU or an Annex II nation.

If you wish to learn more about the visa rules, visit the Guernsey government website.

If you need a visa to visit the country, you can find out more on the internet, but we suggest that you contact the granting authorities (diplomatic mission, consulate, or embassy) directly. They will provide you the most accurate information. Private websites are not always kept up to date, resulting in major errors.

Nonetheless, we can inform you that you must have a passport that is valid for at least 6 months from the date of your arrival in Guernsey. For further information, contact the closest Guernsey embassy.

Contracting parties' rights and duties

The employer's title

A description of the work to be done as well as the place where it will be done

The start and finish dates (if the contract is for a fixed-term)

The duration and terms of the employee's probation period, if one exists.

Salary and payment frequency
