A Sole Representative should be a senior employee of the parent company and should be familiar with the nature of the business carried out by that organisation.

Sole Representatives must also have the skills, experience and knowledge to take on their roles and must not have a majority stake or control a majority of the Overseas Business they represent.

Those applying to enter the UK as Representatives of an Overseas Business, either as Sole Representatives or Media Representatives (when they represent a Media organisation) may bring their Partner and children under the age of 18 to the UK.

This visa can be extended and after five years those in this Immigration category may be eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). If you require assistance with a Representative of an Overseas Business visa, extension or ILR, please contact our Immigration Department.
