The UK Expansion Worker Visa is one of the new visa options under the Global Business Mobility Visa routes. This is the best worker visa suited for overseas businesses who wish to start trading in the UK and require employees to set up a branch of the business.
This visa may allow workers to stay up to 12 months from the job starting date, 14 days after the end of the job, or the time specified on the Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS), whichever is the shortest of the two. If you want to extend your visa once it is coming to the expiry date, you will be able to do this for a maximum of 12 months. The maximum time you are able to stay in the UK with an expansion worker visa is 2 years. Thereafter, you may switch to the Skilled Worker Visa route which gives you the opportunity to obtain Indefinite Leave to Remain in 5 years.
