Investing in a new country is always a challenge. To do so while also moving your home and family is more demanding still, particularly because of the complex regulations surrounding visas.

We will help and support you every step of the way, to make sure that you achieve both your long-term business goals and residency ambitions.

During the three years of your initial visa, we will help you collect and prepare the complex set of documentary evidence you will need to ensure a smooth transition to the two-year extension visa. Our work at this vital stage will include:
  • tracking all the documentation for you and making sure your business complies with UKVI regulations

  • addressing any issues as they arise, to ensure that the process of obtaining your two-year extension visa - and subsequently your Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK - runs smoothly.
