Ward Hadaway - UK Visa Guidelines Hub

In times of change, starting a new business venture overseas comes with many challenges including obtaining the necessary immigration permissions for founders and their workforce.

With EU free movement ending on 31 December and the UK's new immigration system being introduced from 1 January 2021, the options available to entrepreneurs are about to change.

Ward Hadaway's new UK Visa Guidelines Hub is a free online resource providing easy to understand guidance on the upcoming changes, as well as the most common UK visas, in a handy Q&A format. 

Our immigration experts have cut through the mountains of regulation, presenting clear answers to the most frequently asked questions of entrepreneurs looking to establish a business in the UK, individuals who want to move to the UK to work, and businesses wishing to recruit individuals from overseas, .

Our team of dedicated, specialist immigration solicitors work in partnership with our clients to secure a range of visas, dependent on each individual circumstance. We offer a full legal visa service and advise on ‘right to work’ checks to ensure you don’t fall foul of the rules.

For many entrepreneurs and founders we secure Global Talent, Start-up and Innovator visas to utilise global immigration routes to strengthen their operations.

For businesses with a UK office, we have a 100% success rate for sponsorship licence applications and offer a full sponsorship management service, acting as registered legal representatives and Level 1 Users, as well as providing compliance audits and training for ongoing licence management and duties.

Our significant experience covers advising on a variety of business immigration matters and we are recognised as leading advisors on Global Talent visas, as well as Tier 2 General and Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer (ICT) visas.

Due to the complexity of immigration law, no two issues are the same. So when you need bespoke advice, tailored to ensure you have the correct policies in place which fully comply with regulations, trust our experts, you’re in capable hands.
