About the visa

This visa is for people who are coming to the UK as the sole representative of an overseas company that is looking to establish a commercial presence in the UK.  You must be a senior employee, with the authority to make decisions on behalf of the company, but you cannot be a majority shareholder.

Employees of overseas newspapers, news agencies and broadcasting organisations are also eligible to apply under this category.

If you are not a national of a majority English speaking country and don’t have a degree that was taught in English you will need to pass an English test at Level A1 CEFR before you apply.

Your family can live with you in the UK.  You must be able to maintain and accommodate yourself and your family from your own resources.

You can apply to settle permanently in the UK after five years on this visa.

There is no right of appeal if your visa is refused.

justiceThere is no right of appeal to an independent Immigration Judge if your visa is refused.
Instead, the remedy is to apply to the Home Office for an Administrative Review – that is, a review of your application by a different caseworker.
You are not permitted to submit any additional documents, and can only put forward arguments as to why the caseworker made a mistake when considering your application.
You can read more about how we can help you if your visa is refused on our Administrative Review page.

How we can help you

The Immigration Rules set out the exact ways in which a person can show that they are eligible for a visa – and if you do not submit the documents required, you will not have met the requirements of the Rules.  Most decisions are based on the papers you submit, without you ever being interviewed – which means that your paperwork needs to be perfect.
When you ask us to act for you we will:
Ensure that you know what the rules are

We will make sure that you know not only what the Immigration Rules are, but also how the decision maker will interpret the rules, based on the guidance given to Home Office officials.

Give you a complete list of documents

We provide a complete list of all the documents needed to support your application, both those that are mandatory and those based on our experience of preparing many thousand applications.

Check your documents

We will review your documents so that any problems can be dealt with before your application is lodged.

Prepare the application to a very high standard

We will complete all the paperwork, and draft detailed legal representations that set out your case, address any issues that may be problematic, and then go through the different requirements of the Immigration Rules and show how you meet each one.

Provide unlimited advice and support

We will work with you for as long as it takes to get your paperwork perfect.  And because we charge a fixed fee, you can call or email us at any time that your have a question without any extra charge, no matter how many times that is.
