Once a Barbadian Taxation Advisory Services company has been given permission to operate in the EU under the Agreement, what are the options for sending staff from this country to work in Europe?

Generally, the senior Barbadian staff responsible for establishing a commercial presence in Europe may stay for 90 days in any 12-month period. Key personnel will be allowed to work in Europe for a period of up to 3 years, and graduate trainees may stay for one year. Staff in these categories will be, of course, subject to normal visa and immigration requirements.
There are exceptions to those general rules where specific countries have imposed their own conditions on Barbadian staff working in Europe under the EPA. Those are:
- In Austria, there is a nationality condition for representation before competent authorities.
- In Bulgaria & Slovenia there are nationality conditions for specialists and in
- Hungary there is a residency requirement for tax advisory services suppliers.
