The UK Expansion Worker visa is a new sponsored route for established overseas businesses who wish to set up a branch or subsidiary in the UK. It allows eligible businesses to sponsor an existing senior manager or specialist worker when being assigned to the UK for a temporary period of time to undertake work related to the expansion of a business in the UK.


This has replaced the previous unsponsored sole representative provisions of the Representative of an Overseas Business route, although visa-holders already in the UK on this route can apply for further permission and will not be required to switch. This means that the predecessor route will remain open to those with existing permission on that route.

An Expansion Worker in the UK can be accompanied or joined by their partner and dependent children if they meet the relevant requirements for dependants. The applicant and their family will also be able to travel in and out of the UK for so long as their visas remain valid.

No IELTS required
Have worked for that company at least 12 months before arriving in the UK
Have a profession that is listed among the qualifying professions
Receive the minimum salary that is required for the position
