UK Expansion Worker Visa Applications

The UK Government recently announced the introduction of the Global Business Mobility category, with the UK Expansion Worker visa subcategory. This is a UK visa category specifically designed for companies that wish to send one key individual of an overseas company to enter the UK to establish a branch of an overseas business that has not started trading in the UK yet. It replaces the Representative of an Overseas Business category.

Commercial Presence in the UK

This visa is expected to become a popular option for companies and entrepreneurs with businesses abroad and is one of the most suitable routes for businesses to establish a commercial presence in the UK. However unlike its predecessor, the category has stricter rules, does not lead to settlement in the UK and now requires the international employer to have a sponsor licence, allowing them to sponsor the worker.

The UK Expansion Worker visa can be granted to individuals who hold a senior position within a company whose headquarters are outside of the UK for a maximum of two years only
You can apply to come to the UK under the UK Expansion Worker category if you are from outside the UK and the following apply:
  • You have a valid certificate of sponsorship from your employer
  • You have worked for your employer outside of the UK
  • You do a job that is on the list of eligible occupations
  • You are paid the minimum eligible salary required for your job
