The UK has a rich heritage of sports and an international reputation to envy in many different sports. With so much sport in the UK there are many people wishing to come to the UK to work and train at the highest levels. Just like any other professional industry, there is significant competition for employment opportunities so it is really important to ensure that your visa is securely in place and applied for in good time before you come here.

Although there are many different ways you can get general visa advice online or from advisers, perhaps in your own non-EEA country, it is essential to get good quality, qualified legal advice from experienced, specialist solicitors if you want to stay one step ahead of the game.
