Global Business Mobility – Changes to Immigration Law

Immigration Law Change – Global Business Mobility Spring 2022

The new Global Business Mobility route for overseas businesses seeking to create a presence or transfer staff to the UK will be launched in Spring 2022 under the existing sponsorship system.

Improvements include, the new sponsorship system will make it easier for overseas businesses to assign and oversee workers coming to the UK under the Global Business Mobility route.

The current opportunities for overseas businesses looking to transfer talent to the UK are limited. There either needs to be an established UK presence with a senior employee to take responsibility for a sponsor licence, or the sole representative route permits a lone worker to transfer to the UK to establish that presence. The Global Business Mobility route may offer the opportunity for a team of workers to mobilise as one unit, something that is likely to be of use to sectors such as tech.

If require you further information on the Global Business Mobility route, please do not hesitate to contact any of our Immigration staff at Bond Adams, at either of our offices in Birmingham and Leicester.
