Grow your team in Djibouti with Remote

Note that Remote does not have active plans to launch operations in Djibouti due to challenging local market conditions and regulations. We are working hard to extend our Employer of Record coverage around the world and we can help you pay contractors and employees with full legal compliance in many nearby countries.

To employ in Djibouti, companies must own a local legal entity in the country or work with a global employment solution. Developing the processes required to manage payroll, benefits, taxes, and onboarding in countries like Djibouti can get complicated fast, especially without localized expertise.

In the countries where we do offer our EOR services, Remote takes on the responsibility and legal risks of international employment so you can focus on hiring great talent and growing your business.

Risks of misclassification

Djibouti, like many other countries, treats self-employed individuals or contractors and full-time employees differently. Misclassification of contractors in Djibouti may lead to fines and penalties for the offending company.
