Representative of Overseas Businesses


Representative of Overseas Businesses

If you are an overseas business without a base in the UK, it is possible to send a representative to the UK in order to establish a branch of your business here.

In order to qualify for a visa under this category you must have no branch in the United Kingdom and the representative must be a senior employee who will be making operational decisions on your behalf to establish a branch carrying out the same business activity as your overseas business.

It is additionally possible for employees of overseas newspapers, news agencies or broadcasting organisations to be posted on a long-term assignment under this category.
