Guatemalan law is relatively restrictive and provides few solutions for employers hiring foreign nationals.
Following the elimination of the Business Visa, business travelers now enter Guatemala under the category of "Tourist or Traveler" to perform consulting and advisory activities.
Visa nationals must obtain the appropriate entry visa to enter Gu​atemala, but are no longer required to apply for a Business Visa after arrival. The allowable consecutive stay as a business visitor is up to 90 days with the possibility of a 90-day extension. 
The main work authorization option is the Temporary Residence and Work Permit. The Temporary Residence authorization is granted for an initial stay of up to five years, renewable for the same term. The corresponding work permit is valid for one year, renewable annually.  
Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
