Representatives of Overseas Businesses

We can help your business succeed in the UK

"Very commercial and straightforward" - Legal 500

The UK invites established businesses from overseas to set up and invest in the UK economy.

A representative of an overseas business must be an existing employee of an established overseas firm with the intention to come to the UK to establish a subsidiary or branch office.

The firm must retain its principal place of business overseas and the representative must have full control over the UK operation.

This route enables the representative and their family to reside in the UK for five year period before applying for indefinite leave to remain (permanent residence). British citizenship may then follow a year later.

We can advise and assist with every step of the journey.

The Migration Advisory Committee is currently reviewing this route and has issued a Call for Evidence from stakeholders.

We will be pleased to include your evidence in our own response.
