The Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visa

The Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visa

This visa is intended for a senior employee of an overseas business that wishes to open a branch of their business in the UK.
  • You can come to the UK for 3 years, which can then be extended for 2 more years and after 5 years you will become eligible for Settlement in the UK.
  • You can bring your family to the UK with you as your dependents.
  • You must be a senior employee of a business established outside of the UK and Europe but not a majority shareholder of the business
  • You need to have A1 Speaking & Listening English language skills – an IELTS UKVI test certificate dated no more than 2 years before your application for this visa.
  • You need to show a personal bank statement with enough funds to cover the UKVI stated maintenance requirements and also financial documents for the overseas business, like business bank statements and annual accounts.
What we do:
  • We guide you through the very specific eligibility requirements and documentary evidence and we will help create a business plan which describes in detail your current overseas business, why expansion into the UK makes commercial sense and what the set up plans and first three years trading plans will be for your UK branch.
  • We then help prepare the visa application and provide support with preparing for the usual pre-visa UKVI interview
