An employer visa, also known as a work visa, is a type of visa that allows individuals to legally work in a foreign country. The visa is typically sponsored by an employer who has offered the individual a job in their organization.

Employer visas can be temporary or permanent, and the duration of the visa will depend on the specific type of visa and the individual's circumstances. Some countries may also require the individual to return to their home country for a period of time before being eligible to apply for another employer visa.

It's important to note that the application process for an employer visa can be complex and time-consuming, and it's generally recommended to seek the assistance of a qualified immigration lawyer or consultant to help navigate the process.
