Thank you very much for your swift reply.
Before rating can i just double check the following:
The situation is as below:
The applicant will not be only employed for one off purpose, only setting up the branch in the UK. The applicant will be setting up the branch will be continuing to work, providing services of IT consulting as a full time employee of this company for minimum of 10 years.
The parent company has chosen this candidate as he has the expertise and necessary skills to set up their branch and run their services as a sole representative of their company. The parent company would like to offer full time employment in senior job role from June 2013.
The parent company wants the applicant to make an application for sole representative visa in June 2013 so that he can be the sole representative of their company, setting up the branch and operate the registered branch.
He will be given full authority to take operational decisions on behalf of the overseas business for the purpose of representing it in the UK.
The questions are:
1)The fact that the applicant is just being employed (new employee)by the company will affect his visa application negatively?
2) How many months or years minimum does the applicant have to be employed by the parent company?
Thank you very much in advance.
