No, it is not necessary to have a working permit for the
duty station before applying for an international contract position with UNOPS.
However, it is important to note that UNOPS requires candidates to have the
legal right to work in the country where the position is located, either
through citizenship or a valid work permit.
If you are selected for a UNOPS position, the organization
will work with you to obtain the necessary visas and work permits required to
work in the duty station. However, it is important to note that the process of
obtaining a work permit can take time, so it is advisable to start the process
as soon as possible after being selected for the position.
UNOPS also provides support and guidance to employees on
immigration and visa-related matters. If you have any specific questions or
concerns about working permits or immigration requirements for a particular
duty station, it is recommended to consult the job posting or contact UNOPS HR
for more information.
