Representative of an Overseas Business visa
If you are a journalist, reporter and employee of an overseas newspaper, News Agency or broadcasting organisation and you are being posted in the UK, you can apply for a representative of an overseas Business visa.
As one of the top five economies in the world, the UK offers extensive business opportunities for aspiring global entrepreneurs. Get a head start on those prospects by setting up a UK business from overseas. All you need is a Representative of an Overseas Business Visa.
The visa allows you to work and live in the country initially for 3 years and you may extend this visa for another 2 years. After completing 5 years of residence in the UK you can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK. You can also bring your dependants with you.
