The UK is a top destination for athletes and sporting professionals in a diverse range of disciplines. Whether you are a sportsperson, coach or club, our immigration solicitors in London are well versed in the full range of UK visas available to sportspersons who wish to visit, or work in, the UK.

If you want to work as a sportsperson, undertaking sporting activities in the UK, you will normally need to have a visa under one of the tiers of the points-based system. The points-based system has special categories and rules for those in the sporting industry, both professional and amateur. In most categories you will have to be sponsored by an employer. However, if you are going to be in the UK briefly, or for a single event or activity, one of the visitor visas may be appropriate.

The main immigration routes available to sportspersons are:

  • Visit (Standard) – Business Sports visa;
  • Permitted Paid Engagement Visitor visa;
  • Tier 2 Sportsperson visa;
  • Tier 5 Temporary Worker visa.

Our specialist immigration solicitors work closely with professional and amateur sportspersons, employers and event organisers across all sports to ensure that their immigration and visa requirements are met.

For expert advice and assistance with applying for a UK visa as a professional or amateur sportsperson, employer or sports event organiser, please contact our immigration solicitors on 0207 467 5767 or email d.winnie@rfblegal.co.uk
