Will you give me a call when you have an anwser? as it is paid for

Thank you for your patience. If he worked in the Uk before 30 December 2020 whilst he was living in the UK then he cannot apply for the frontier worker permit. This is available where an EU national worked here but was resident elsewhere.

You have not said what work he does with the horses but if he is a rider and classed as a sportsmen, as.opposed to taking care of horses then he could apply for the Sportsmen Visa

Any follow up please do not hesitate to return for further guidance. We are always glad to clarify anything and to assist. All the best.

Can you please give me a call.......He has been living in Dubai for the last 18 years, about 6 years ago he started going to the UK to work for RaceTech - working at the starting gates as an Assistant Starter for the horse racing. So he has been a resident in Dubai but working in the UK over the summer for Race Tech since 2016/2017.
Before moving to Dubai (Until 2005), he used to be working full time in the UK as a Work Rider & Sable Lad.

Can you update me on the type of visa please

Hi, He needs a skilled worker visa given the additional information that you have sent.

Does that then require him to have a sponsor in the UK?

Please can you give me a call

Hi, I am not able to call you as your call was allocated to another expert, I may have been in Court when you requested it. He will need to be sponsored yes, regrettably there are no special rules really for EU citizens now
