View Full Version : How to increase likelihood of a work permit?

13-11-2010, 10:51
Iím playing as FC Fyn (1 division in Denmark), and I have found a Croatian player I would like to buy (Marko Livaja). He agrees to my contract, but donít get a work permit, so I wonder how to increase the chance for him getting it? Hope you can help me with this, since i need a better striker very bad.

That's mostly about UK, and there might be diffrent rules for work permit in Denmark. Also it don't explane how to increase the likelihood of a player getting the work permit. I hope i can get some help from you guys :)

Is Marko Livaja the one with the Global ban ?

Sadly, I think if he's not getting it, he's not getting it.

In real life there is an appeals system (Middlesbrough got really good at it at one point, when we were buying loads of Brazillians), so you can claim it is only exceptional circumstances that have prevented the player from playing the necessary amount of internationals, but this is only loosely implemented in FM. I don't think Croatia have enough talent to argue that it's only incredibly good players who have prevented him from playing.

Find a new target I think.

Not sure about the danish divisions, however, in the English divisions you can appeal the vote. Usually comes out to ones benefit, only tried a few times when they had too much tea.

England is vastly different to Denmark, completely different immigration laws
Ironically, finding out via google is near impossible because it won't shut up about UK Permits (grrr... we aren't the only country in the world)


This is the closest, but that's in general, so no idea if it's taken into account with FM (Though I believe wages were in FM2010)

But take Steven Piennar for example, or Welliton at Spartak Moscow. Piennar, says my scout, is unlikely to get a work permit should he sign on a free transfer, yet he's been playing in England for some seasons now. Is it just a case of appealing and hoping for the best, or will he really not get one?

Is that in the English or Danish league?

In England it's based on their ability to improve the league standard (either immediately or with potential to do so with training) if they can't get a permit based on their international appearances

In Denmark, if offered a contract a contract of around £43,000/year the permit should be given automatically (if wages are taken into account like Danish Law)

if you're talking to me, then i was wanting to sign piennar on a bosman for a prem team

Yes I was lol
If he is still consider a very good player, you'll get him anyway
If South Africa is in the top 75(?) nations and he still appears in most games, it'll be straight away, otherwise you should get him on appeal
I'd be surprised if you don't get him, unless he has become really bad

Well it' only in the first season, so he's in his prime more or less.

Marko Livaja have a global ban.

And yes danish rules are much diffrent than british rules. But i hoped that someone knew how to work around it. The 43.000£ is much more that i'm able to pay to get him (29.500 is maksimum) and even if i could he would take about 1/5 of my total wagebudget with that wage.

My understanding is, he shouldn't have a global ban, just one for the Croatian leagues
Other than the wage, I can't say I know a way of increasing your chances
Denmark is known to have perhaps the toughest immigration laws on the planet (Infact, the EU were trying to force them to relax their laws a couple of years back)

Signing a player on trial then offering a contract has worked well for me a couple of times.
