UK Sole Representative Visa

UK Sole Representative Visa conceptualizes exploring business avenues in the UK and unfolding more prospects for overseas business. This is an ideal pathway to enter the international market while also advancing your chances at UK Residency. UK Business Visas are a perfect platform to grow and nurture your business ideas and prosper overseas.


This visa is often seen as a very popular option for those looking to apply for the entrepreneur visa but does not want the outlay of a £200,000 investment.

The overseas representative visa, also known as the UK sole representative visa, allows a senior representative of an already established company who does not have an existing UK presence to come to the UK to set up a UK presence in the form of a branch or a subsidiary.

The visa allows the senior representative to travel to the UK in order to establish the company in the form of registering the company, conducting business matters, opening offices and acting as the sole representative of said company.

In this regards, Global-Migrate provides guidance for applicants looking to obtain their overseas representative visa and will manage every step of the application process from the first contact through to granting of the visa as well as extensions Download Brochure.

What type of companies should consider this option?

This visa is favourable for growing companies who have no presence in the UK and are looking to move into the market. Because there is no investment requirement it is often seen as a more flexible option than the Entrepreneur visa.

  • Who does not want to invest a lump sum of capital into the business?
