UK Sole Business Representative Visa
You can apply to enter the UK as a Representative of an Overseas Business if you are outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland, and you are a senior manager that plans on becoming the sole representative for a company which is going to be expanding to the UK.
This visa allows applicants to enter the UK for an initial period of three years, which can then be extended for a further two years. After five continuous years in which the applicant has resided in the UK for at least 185 days each year, they would then be applicable to gain permanent residence and therefore eligible for a British passport.
