Global Mobility Visa

This visa (live 11th April 2022) will let overseas businesses send workers to the UK temporarily to establish and/or expand their businesses.  It consolidates:

  • (Tier 2) Intra Company Transfer Visa

  • (Tier 2)  Intra Company Graduate Trainee Visa

  • Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visa

  • (Tier 5) Temporary Work – International Agreement visa

This route is the Government’s response to the MAC ICT study.

 

The Skilled Worker visa will likely remain the main route that businesses use for senior staff & technical specialists planning to settle in the UK.   But the skilled worker route requires a UK presence, which used to create a chicken-and-the-egg complication, that was not always solved by the Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visa route. 

 

The Global Business Mobility visa route will cater to 5 types of posting:

 

UK Expansion

Senior or Specialist worker  

Graduate Trainees 

Service Suppliers

Secondees
