Introduction to Immigration Framework
You need very few regulations to go to the United Kingdom for business. Passports from several countries are allowed to enter the UK without a visa. A valid travel permit is usually issued 30 days after arrival in the UK (60 days for APEC Business Travel Card holders) and includes: (a) for social, business or business purposes, (b) for tourism or (c) Involved for employment or employment in the UK.
Exemptions are available for you to participate in certain temporary activities without a work permit in the UK. Alternatively, a work permit is required to participate in any activity, business, trade or profession. Applying for a work permit in the UK is a complicated process that can take up to three weeks. The Ministry of Manpower (MAMA) issues the following passports for living and working in the UK:
1. Work permits for low-skilled and low-skilled workers, domestic workers, detainees (limited to Malaysian citizens) and singers designated by appropriate public entertainment venues
2. S-floors for moderately skilled technical workers;
3. Permission to hire professionals, managers, managers or high-paid and highly skilled persons
4. Individual Percentage Pass (PEP) for high-paid employees, managers and supervisors
5. Entry pass for entrepreneurs looking to start new businesses that will contribute to local employment in the UK.
Employment passports – the most relevant work passes for staying in the company – are usually issued for the first 12 to 24 months, as a rule. These passports can also be renewed for the duration of 12-36 months after getting the approval from issuing authority just before their expiry. The initial renewal does not cover loss or damage to the current state of ownership during ownership.
Investors and officials of Passport, S Passport and PEP can apply for permanent residency as a permanent resident of the UK. A person can apply for permanent residence along with his/her spouse and children below the age of 21 years. Permanent citizens do not require a passport to participate in work or business.
Permanent citizens can apply for UK citizenship by registering. If the application is approved, a person will have to renounce his foreign citizenship before registering as a citizen of the UK.
