Helping UK businesses navigate work visa requirements for the EU

Some of our clients have subsidiaries or a parent company in the EU, others need to supply their services to a client in the EU. Our business immigration lawyers are able to advise on the visa requirements as set out in the EU-UK Trade Agreement and on specific member state reservations. 

How we advise on EU-UK movement of staff:

Permitted business visitor activities

Our immigration lawyers can advise on the permitted business activities allowed as a visitor and can advise on the documentation requirements specific to your assignment.

Service Supplier Visa

If you are an employed service provider or a self-employed professional and you need to be in the UK for longer than 6 months to provide a service our legal experts can advise if this visa is suitable.

Frontier visas

If you are an EU worker who commutes to the UK regularly in order to work but reside outside of the UK then you may be eligible for a Frontier Work Permit (providing that this was also the case before 31st December 2020).

Work Visa Rules for the EU

Our business immigration lawyers advise UK businesses on the EU rules and country specific visa requirements to work in an EU member state. To discuss your objectives with a member of our legal team, please get in touch.

In-house Visa Training

Our business immigration solicitors are able to provide remote training to HR teams and organisations on the visa requirements to establish a business and transfer staff to the UK.

Establishing a UK office

If you are from the EU and wish to establish an office in the UK then there are a number of visa options which will help you to achieve this. Our immigration lawyers will assess your objectives and current UK activities to advise on the most appropriate visa option for you.


The ECAA visa previously allowed Turkish nationals who were over the age of 18 to enter the European Community and set up or join existing business in the UK. The route is closed for new applicants, however, there remains provisions to extend existing visas and to settle in the UK.
