  • Healthcare registration
  • Opening a bank account
  • Family relocation assistance

What are the list of countries that are covered?

We currently provide relocation services in 5 countries through our partners.

  • Germany
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Portugal
  • Estonia

If you are looking for visa assistance only (and not any other relocation services mentioned above) please get in touch with us: support@oysterhr.com

The viability of a visa is investigated on a case-by-case basis.


How can I raise a relocation request? 

You can submit a relocation request for any existing or future Oyster hire by signing up for Oyster and navigating to the relocation page. We will validate your request and work with our partners to start the relocation process. Our relocation partners will get in touch with your team member and their manager to explain the process and get started.


Are visa sponsorships also supported?

Visa sponsorship depends on several factors like citizenship and the right to work. Our partner will assess the situation along with the employee and keep you informed about how we can support. 

How does pricing work?

The pricing varies and is dependent on the type of support needed, the country your team members needs to be relocated in, and citizenship of the team member. Once you've submitted a request, our partners will share an accurate quote with you.
