Our Global Mobility Services

The Global Mobility route promises to provide a new streamlined immigration route allowing overseas entities greater flexibility in transferring migrant workers to the UK to establish and expand their businesses.

Via this new route, there is the possibility of greater flexibility being introduced for businesses to establish their offices in the UK or continuing their business relationships with their clients and suppliers in the country.

Clients benefit from a top class service at a fixed fee, meaning that all of our prices are transparent and upfront, helping your company budget accordingly for the legal fees.

I would definitely recommend Westkin to anyone needing an immigration lawyer. I was told that my case was highly unlikely to be granted. With the help of Westkin, my whole process of visa preparation, application and result was finished successfully and quickly. They were well informed, smart, helpful and kind.

The new Global Business Mobility visa is specifically aimed at accommodating those who wish to come to the UK to grow their businesses and employ people.

This visa category visa has been designed to help UK businesses with their business immigration needs, and overseas workers with their individual immigration needs, through permitting the transfer* of staff to the UK under the points-based immigration system. The five categories are:

  • Graduate Trainees undertaking a UK placement as part of a structured training programme;
  • Service Suppliers travelling to the UK to deliver a service in line with a UK trade commitment (e.g. GATS)
  • Secondment Workers on secondment to a UK business for a specific purpose (e.g. to transfer knowledge related to a high value import or export and,
  • UK Expansion Workers who will be specialist or senior employees who are on assignment as part of the UK expansion of the overseas business.

Global Mobility refers to a collection of visa applications which can be made by those seeking to work for sponsor licence holders in the United Kingdom.
Yes, you will need to upgrade your licence to cover Global Mobility, Westkin can do this and apply for the priority service to do so.
Staff who would otherwise qualify for the old intra-company transfer would also qualify for the GM status I.E., where a company send one of their existing members of staff to from the existing country to the UK to fulfil their role at the same company.
There are a number of categories, these include service workers and seconded workers who might be needed for very short-term roles as part of larger UK projects.
Westkin can advise but generally speaking a permanent employee will use a skilled worker visa and an employee who return to their country after a limited amount of time will need a Global Mobility Visa.
