View Full Version : Work permits - HELP!!!

15-12-2010, 22:30

For the past 7-8 years I have used the editor to make every foreign nation a member of the EU.

I have decided to play by the rules, but I am out of touch with the work permit regulations.

I want to play in England. Am I able to purchase young South American talent or will their permits be rejected?

If I do get them, do I need to play them in a certain percentage of games?

Do feeder teams from a particular nation help?

If a South American player or any player of a nationality that is not in the EU whether young or old will need a work permit. If they have a second nationality that is in the EU(I think) they will not need a work permit. Not all work permits are rejected but some maybe most will be rejected. If you have a feeder club where it is easy or quicker to gain that nationality then you may be given the opportunity to sign that player and send him on loan to the feeder club. Belgium is seen as one of the main nations where it is best to send players who need to gain a work permit quickly. I think it takes three years in Belgium. Hope this helps mate :).

Cheers mate - once they get their permit in Belguim is it there for life?

Yeah it is. If they're from South America though, you might as well send them to Spain. It's only 2 years to gain Spanish nationality if they're from South or Central America, 8 or 10 otherwise. That's why Vela, Pedro Botelho and soon Wellington Silva were/are/will be loaned.
