There are a few pro tips that we can offer injured workers who have been working overseas. First and foremost, make sure to get all the medical documentation you need in order to file a Workers’ Compensation claim. This documentation will include everything from your injury report to your doctor’s notes. Secondly, it is important to make sure you have all the proper travel documents in order to move around and work. Make sure you are aware of any visa requirements that may be necessary for your country of residence. And finally, make sure to keep your passport and visa safe at all times – if lost or stolen, it will be very difficult to replace them.
We hope these tips help you as you begin your healing process. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us. We would be happy to help!
