Global Business Mobility Visas
The Global Business Mobility visas introduce new immigration routes and replacing some of the legacy immigration programs. As the evolution of the immigration program changes, we will see a number of changes in those immigration routes.
This business visa route is there to simplify the immigration programs that both entrepreneurs, skilled workers and enterprises should apply under.
For the enterprises, it’s a change in the way in which the UK Government sees as part of the growth investment they intend to do and without enterprises being at the forefront, this cannot be achieved.
The introduction of the Global Business Mobility visa routes brings in 5 immigration programs that both entrepreneurs and enterprises that can apply for. It ensures that the UK can benefit from entrepreneurs to skill share to improve business competitiveness in the UK markets.
