What does "relocation offered" exactly mean? Is it about sponsoring visa/work permit? I have seen many positions indicating "relocation offered" but then mentioning that applicants must be [I guess already] eligible to live and work in that country.

I think it would be really helpful to be able to filter results based on sponsoring visa, like HN "Who is hiring?" posts. [It has also been discussed here.]

    The last sentence you just edited it is really a separate thing. You should search to see if it's been requested already, or post a new feature-request if not, if you like. – Andrew Barber Aug 22 '13 at 19:48
  • @AndrewBarber I have already searched for "relocation offered", I will search for it and remove it if it already has been discussed. – anon Aug 22 '13 at 19:50

  • @JohnS I deleted my comment before the reply, but 'relocation offered' is a pretty generic job hunting term, that's why I commented about migration. – Colin D Aug 22 '13 at 20:01

"Relocation offered" generally refers to an employer being willing to consider paying moving expenses and providing other considerations to enable a new hire to move there. It usually does not include things related to those not already eligible to work in the country in question.

    Should this question be here ? or is it here because the question is asked in respect of careers.stackoverflow.com ? – Habib Aug 22 '13 at 19:45

    @Habib: yes, that's what the [careers] tag is for (it doesn't have a separate Meta site.) – Wooble Aug 22 '13 at 19:46
  • Does it mean paying moving expenses for an interview? – giannis christofakis Dec 26 '13 at 11:06
  • @yannishristofakis No, it doesn't. – Andrew Barber Dec 27 '13 at 19:19
