Global Business Mobility Visas

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. 

Requirements of the Global Business Mobility Visas

To meet the requirements of the Global Business Mobility visa, you will need to meet the following requirements:

  1. Validity requirements. In doing so, you need to make sure the correct visa application form is chosen and that the specified evidence is related to the identity of the applicant. 

  2. Suitability requirements are needed to be met. An applicant must not fall for refusal under the general grounds of refusal. 

  3. The eligibility requirements look at meeting the specified immigration rules. There are particular requirements that an applicant must meet, which include those who are applying under specific immigration programs. 

Certificate of Sponsorship 

The immigration programs under the Global Business Mobility visa do require a certificate of sponsorship. This is not required on all immigration visa routes under this. You must check prior to lodging an immigration application. 

Where this is required, an employer must provide the certificate of sponsorship which must be valid at the date of application. This is a virtual work permit document required for the purposes of the visa application.

If an enterprise does not hold a sponsor licence, it would not be able to issue the certificate of sponsorship. Where you need advice on applying and becoming a licenced employer, please find more details here

Application fees for the Global Business Mobility visas

The Home Office requires application fees from each applicant, including the fee towards the immigration health surcharge. 

There are additional fees required for the priority visa service and also added value services at the visa centres.
