I went to UK in 2006 , I overstayed my student visa from 2009 to 2014 , came back voluntarily on my own expenses . Started working for a company in Dubai from 2014 till date . My company offered me to go to Uk and open a branch office Usually called a Sole Rep visa . Do you think i can qualify for that because of my previous overstay . I am currently working as HR Manager for a consultancy firm . Thank you for your time to read .
Areas of Expertise:
Thank you for your question.
If you overstayed your visa you could be banned from re-entering the UK for between 1-10 years. Given your circumstances, it may be best to use an experienced solicitor to make you application for you and explain your overstay in a covering letter.
