Business Immigration Visas
In today’s global marketplace, being able to conduct business in the UK is critical to the growth and success of many businesses. The UK is particularly welcoming to business investors, foreign companies or those who simply want to come here to work. However, immigration law and visa applications can be daunting and time-consuming for those without specialist knowledge. Our aim is to make the process as smooth, quick and as easy as possible – allowing you to remain focused on your own work.
Whatever your reason for wishing to conduct business or work in the UK, our experienced team of immigration specialists are on hand to offer advice and assistance in all aspects of immigration law. We have particular expertise in the following areas:
Tier 1 – Entrepreneur/Investor Visas
for those who wish to establish, join or invest in a business in the UK. Our team will ensure you meet all the requirements of this visa and that these are properly substantiated within the required documentary evidence.
Tier 2 – Sponsor Licence Visas. These allow UK businesses to employ non-EU migrant workers. Permission is granted by the Home Office and will allow you to directly hire skilled employees from non European Economic Area (EEA) countries. We ensure all applications meet the Home Office’s stringent requirements, helping to make the hiring process easier for employers.
Tier 2 – General Work Permit Visas. This points-based visa is for workers outside of the EEA or Switzerland. It’s designed for those highly-skilled migrant employees who are filling a gap within the workplace that cannot be filled by a settled worker from the UK. There are a number of steps that need to be taken to secure this type of visa, and our experts will guide you through each one for the best chance of success.
Tier 5 – Temporary Workers Visa. This points-based visa allows individuals to undertake short-term employment within the UK – included within this category are creative and sporting visas, along with visas for charity and religious workers. Our experts can help ensure that you meet with all the requirements and also have the correct documentary evidence for your Tier 5 Visa.
As well as the above, we also specialise in securing visas for those wanting to visit the UK for a meeting or short business trip.
