UK Sole Representative Visa

Employers can send a business representative to the UK

2 Years of initial visa

Visa extendable for 3 more years


Are you a business wanting to send your representative to the UK? or are you a representative of a business checking for a suitable UK visa? In either of the cases, UK Sole Representative Visa is the answer. It is for representative of established overseas companies outside European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland and not for entrepreneurs who wish to set up a business in the UK.

Overseas companies and representative mean either:

  • A company planning to set up a UK branch for a wholly owned subsidiary of an overseas parent company.
  • An employee of a news/media agency posted to the UK for a long-term assignment.

UK Sole Representative Visa requirements are backed by stringent policies to restrict its misuse for personal immigration gains. To know what those rules are and how you can apply for this visa, Interact with an expert at Y-Axis.
