Business Immigration

Routes to Business Immigration Under the Immigration Rules

Apply for a Tier 2 Licence, Sole Rep Visa or an Innovator Visa

There a range of visa’s available to businesses in the UK and overseas. A UK business visa can be a Sole Representative of an Overseas Business, a Tier 1 Entrepreneur extension, Innovator Visa or a Start Up Visa.

Businesses can only sponsor a foreign worker that they would like to employ if the company holds a Tier 2 Licence and are a Sponsor listed on the Register of Sponsor’s.

Home Office updates the Tier 2 Register of Sponsorseveryday on it’s website. All the Tier 2 & Tier 5 visas are sponsored by the Tier 2 Sponsor employer.

The Home Office has introduced new visa categories for people who wish to start a business in the UK by replacing some categories with the old Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa category.

Start Up visa & Innovator visa both fall under Appendix W of the Immigration rules and allows the applicant’s to run their own business in the UK.  Applicants can bring their family to the UK and their children can attend British schools.

Requirements for UK Business Visas

All the UK Visas have their own set of requirements to be met. Applicant’s can either apply for the relevant visa themselves or instruct an OISC regulated Immigration Lawyer to advise them and represent them to the UKVI & Home Office.

Different requirements are to be met for different visa categories and different timelines for processing of these visas are observed. Applications from some countries are processed faster than the others.

All the visas can be applied from outside the UK but not all of them can be applied from within the UK therefore it is very important you either consult the Guidance of the visa you wish to apply for or an Immigration Lawyer / Solicitor who can advise you.

    GSN team assisted me in applying spouse visa from outside uk.
    pleased with there service and level of support i received. had a successful result on the application. Initially, I enquired to most of the solicitors around Harrow-On-The-Hill station. Unlike others, GSN team listened to my situation and gave me confidence by clarifying and providing a clear legal advise.
    The proactive GSN team ensured to submit the application from the eyes of ukvi case worker which reduces the hurdles for immigration team, and increases turn-around time of the application decision. I strongly recommend to others, and support small and local business.

    During this virus situation with piling up of visa applications for UKVI, we were able to get our Tier2 visa for myself and my spouse without any huddles. With a very fast turnaround time for all the queries, Liang is undoubtedly a brilliant and also a very friendly person. We are extremely grateful for all the advice, support and expertise we received during the application process.

    I went to GSN for help on trying to get my fiancee from the united states to move here. They were very helpful throughout the entire process, initially answering some questions free of charge, then making the whole process very clear to us both during a paid consultation. We eventually came back to them to setup a case and the entire process was very professional with regular and supportive communication; Each step of what we needed to do and what information was needed next was well laid out and explained, with shared google drive folders to collaborate with.

    Unfortunately due to covid, the prospect of my fiancee moving here fell through and, partially in due to that, as did the relationship. GSN were kind enough to grant me a partial refund on the case, which they admit is not the regular procedure but they were understanding of the situation. I would have preferred to have completed using their services, but it was a pleasure to work with them for the time that I did.

    I recommend them especially for their communication and ability to help explain the entire immigration process in a way that's understandable even if you have no prior knowledge.

    We used GSN services for the second time. The company has a simple and very effective system to collect all the documents required by visa uk. We also had a dedicated assistant, who made sure that all the documents were submitted in the correct format. The assistant was very helpful and always available to give professional advice and to answer all my questions.
    I made a mistake and miscalculated the final date for my application. When I contacted GSN, I only had 2 weeks to the due date. The guys worked days and nights to help me to put the application together. As a result we submitted all on time and got a positive outcome.
    There are not enough words to express our gratitude. Especially I would like to thank my case manager Liang. She was outstanding dealing with such a difficult customer in such difficult circumstances.
    Overall we had an amazing experience and most importantly positive result.
    Thank you very much and all the best for your business.

    This outfit is first class - I would even say 'Gold Standard'. They are not cheap but are GREAT value for money because they CARE. Rahila is supported by a very bright and helpful guy 'Shah' who is ALWAYS available. Never do I find 'this is the O2 answering service' or 'your call is important to us'. There is ALWAYS someone of flesh and blood and HUMANITY at the other end of the line.

    Trying to do Visas ONLINE is like trying to get a job ONLINE. A route to madness. Give this team a chance. They'll tell it like it is. And they will get you there!

    Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value I used GSN Immigration to extend Spouse Visa for Nirmaya Thapa Magar. I am her uncle and helping her and her father Inlaw Mr Prem Bahadur Pun. We were finding difficult as to what kind of document/papers to present for the application let alone the appropriate application form because of the complication of status of applicant we were worried. When I contacted Mrs Rahila and explained in details she gave me lots of assurances that she can handle this case. This was big relief to us. Mrs Rahila and Mr ZShah were very polite and professional who helped us with all paperworks and fill up application form with strong recommendations. As result Spouse Visa for Nirmaya was successful! Mrs Rahila gave further help/advise for PPI application for husband of Nirmaya Mr Bishal. I would definitely recommend GSN Immigration to my friends and relatives.

I am so happy that I decided to go with GSN Immigration Ltd, thanks to Ms X Liang’s attention to detail and in-deep scrutiny in checking the documentation provided, the process was very easy and straightforward. The communication was clear and we were helped to understand each stage of process. In the end, a swift decision was made in favour of my wife’s Spouse visa.
