Factsheet: Secondment

The Secondment Worker visa forms part of the UK’s Global Business Mobility (GBM) immigration route for overseas businesses who need to temporarily send workers to the UK for a specific purpose that cannot be done by a settled worker.

You can apply for a Secondment Worker visa if your overseas employer is transferring you to the UK to do an eligible job for a different organisation. Your overseas employer must have a high-value contract with the UK organisation. This is a new immigration route under the points-based system from 11 April 2022, and therefore there is no equivalent predecessor route.

This guide outlines who is eligible for a Secondment Worker visa and how to apply.
