Visit Visa transfer to Work Visa

One company has agreed to give a work visa for my wife who is in our country at present. As this is going to take some time, can I bring her here on a visit visa and later get it transferred into a work visa. If not, what if that company agrees to give her visit visa. Can that visa be transferred into work visa and can her papers be processed while she is on a visit?

Name withheld

Answer:
To process a work visa in the private sector, she will have to leave the country and come back. If she, however, comes to the country on a commercial visit visa and she is a graduate the company can get her a work permit and she can transfer without leaving the country.
