Service Supplier Route Visa
The Service Supplier route, otherwise known as Global Business Mobility, is designed for overseas workers who are undertaking temporary work assignments in the UK. This route is applicable to workers who are employed under a contract and sent to the UK by their overseas employer to work for a UK employer. This route is an ideal solution for employers looking to meet the needs of their business by bringing in workers with a specific set of skills and knowledge. It also offers the overseas worker the opportunity to gain experience and skills from the UK employer. A service supplier employed by an overseas service provider, or a self-employed independent professional based overseas may need to undertake an assignment in the UK in order to provide services that are covered by one of the UK’s international trade agreements. Depending on the nature of the services, the service supplier may need to apply for and obtain a visa in order to enter the UK. In addition, they may need to comply with the relevant provisions of the UK’s international trade agreements in order to be allowed to operate in the UK.
