  • API integration that can incorporate data in the tool into client systems and reporting tools
  • New post-pandemic travel requirements will be incorporated as jurisdictions emerge from the global health crisis

Together, the companies will work with clients to develop service models that complement and supplement in-house immigration functions, while ensuring the benefits of enhanced user experience, market-competitive pricing and increased efficiency.

In the pre-Covid-19 global immigration landscape, business travel and short-term movement was becoming ever more important. Although the pandemic halted most business travel in 2020, major markets are beginning to recover and travel restrictions are being lifted. As global travel opens once more, comprehensive oversight of business visits and cross-border moves will be mission critical for Fragomen’s clients.

By combining Fragomen’s knowledge and experience with Nomadic’s cutting-edge technology, we’ll be able to provide a single, cost-effective solution for our clients’ needs.”

“Nomadic’s alignment with a firm as strong as Fragomen gives both organizations the opportunity to provide wing-to-wing immigration services to the international business community,” said Brendan Ryan, CEO of Nomadic. “The business travel market has been shifting toward increased use of short-term travel options. We are thrilled to introduce an innovative and cost-effective short-term travel solution to the market and, following our acquisition of The Visa Team in the UK and UAE, we plan to expand our footprint and end-to-end business visa execution capability.
