Tier 2 Visa
If you are a medium or highly skilled worker and would like to work in the UK you will need a Tier 2 Visa.
Tier 2 of the Points Based immigration System (PBS) is designed to allow sponsored employees work in the UK. This means that you will need to have an offer of employment with a British company known as a sponsor.
- Tier 2 - Work Permit
- Tier 2 - Change of Employment
- Tier 2 - Intra Company Transfers (ICT)
A Tier 2 Work Permit goes hand in hand with a UK Licensed Sponsor. Before a Tier 2 Work Permit can be approved you must first have a sponsor in the UK.
If you are in the UK with a Tier 2 Visa you may wish to change employment. The process of obtaining a certificate of sponsorship and be reassessed against the Points Based System (PBS) will need to be repeated.
Intra Company Transfers (ICT's) allow multi-national employers to transfer overseas employees to fill a specific position which they have been unable to fill from the local workforce.
