The following Immigration guidance note Produced in partnership with Helen Smith of North Star Law provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This category provides a route of entry and stay in the UK for:
individuals who will be the sole UK representative of an overseas business which seeks to establish and operate a registered branch or wholly-owned subsidiary in the UK, and
media employees of overseas newspapers, news agencies or broadcasting organisations who are being posted by their overseas employer on a long-term UK posting
This category is an employment category remaining outside of the Points-Based System (PBS). No sponsorship by a UK-based employer is required.
Information for individuals applying in various immigration categories is currently presented on the GOV.UK website. The GOV.UK pages intend to provide a straightforward and short summary of the key facts that a would-be applicant needs to know about each category, eg as to eligibility requirements, procedure and current fees, and to provide links to relevant forms and guidance. They are specifically aimed towards applicants (who are not well-versed in the technicalities and terms of immigration law), rather than immigration advisers. In our view, these pages should be treated with a degree of caution. In some places, various aspects of eligibility and procedure are not mentioned at all, and in others they are expressed in a way that can appear misleading.
