Our team offers expert advice and representation for professional sportspersons or coaches wishing to come and work in the UK. Our bespoke services for professional and elite sportspersons are carefully tailored to meet individual club or player needs and include a flexibility of communication mechanisms and a designated representative for contact and support services. This allows players and sports clubs to focus on their primary sports interests, whilst our team takes care of any visa issues.
From 1st January 2021, the previous system of free movement of EU nationals has ended and a new points-based system immigration system has been implemented into UK law. This means that more players and coaches will require visas to enter the UK and that a revised set of rules has been implemented for sportspersons coming to play and work in the UK. Our team keeps up to date with legal developments for sportspersons, so players and coaches do not have to.
The legal requirements for sportspersons coming to live or work in the UK are now found (for the most part) in Appendix T2 Sportsperson of the Immigration Rules and Appendix T5 (Temporary Worker) Creative or Sporting Worker of the Immigration Rules. The importance of understanding the legal and evidential requirements for sportspersons and coaches coming to the UK, should not be underestimated. Our team are able to navigate the legal requirements for sportspersons and coaches wanting to come to the UK and liaise with the Home Offices and governing bodies to help secure the appropriate visas. Our team understands the need to work quickly to secure visas for sportspersons and respond to given deadlines, without compromising on quality of legal support services.
