It has been reported in Expat Forum that the scheme is being run by UK Visas and Immigration in conjunction with the Greater London Authority (GLA). Anyone from outside the EEA is required by law to have a visa to work in the UK, and employers can now access a full list of these countries. Further information now available through the GLA website includes an overview of sponsoring an overseas worker, a best practice guide, as well as access to help from the Home Office for more complex issues.

Providing a comprehensive overseas moving service for more than 50 years, the team at Interdean are experienced in both domestic and business moves. Renowned for their free visa advice, the specialists are committed to pursuing the latest industry updates and developments. A representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the news.

“Visa requirements for both employers and employees can be very complex which is why it’s good to see that some clarity is being provided through this new scheme. Many people are unaware of their rights and requirements, for example for non EEA nationals looking to start a business in the UK it may be possible to apply for an entrepreneur visa. At Interdean we provide free visa and immigrations assistance that we encourage our customers to take advantage of.”
