The UK is one of the World's most famous movement goals for individuals wishing to live and work in another nation. Be that as it may, the UK movement framework is prohibitive. Following the EU submission consequence of 23 June 2016 and the choice to leave the EU further changes have been made to the UK visa framework. As of late the UK Innovator visa and UK Start-Up visa plot have been presented.
By and large you have to go under the UK level focused visa framework which estimates candidates against different rules intended to survey their qualification for a UK work or study visa. Most business related visa applications, for example, the Tier 2 visa conspire, just as Tier 4 examination visa applications, are currently made through this framework. Since 2010 the UK government has made a progression of changes to UK movement law so as to confine migration to the UK, particularly from outside of the EEA.
While we are waiting for full details on the proposed Australian-style points-based system, there have been exciting developments of our own existing one! The main work category, Tier 2 sponsored work permit, was expanded in the autumn 2019 and made easier than ever. We didn’t think we’d be saying that after 10 years of draconian Tier 2 rules! You still need to look for a Tier 2 Sponsor, a UK-based company that is able to give you a job. A list of current Tier 2 sponsors can be found on the official Register but it is constantly updated because new companies are added all the time.
Option 1 :
it remains very popular to come to the UK on another visa, such as Tier 4 Student or Tier 5, do some work, meet employers and secure a job offer from a company that is willing to sponsor you. If they don’t have a Tier 2 licence yet, we can help to secure one. It is also beneficial to obtain a degree from a UK university because you would have a qualification familiar to UK employers. For example, you can work part-time during terms and full-time on vacations including after completing your course; you can work full-time on Tier 5 YMS. When your visa is about to expire, your employer may not want to let you go! And with the plans to revive a Post-Study Work visa, we are indeed entering the great time to work in Britain! It used to be a 2-year visa allowing you to work, after which you could very likely secure sponsorship in the above-mentioned in-demand skilled jobs. If you are studying for a PhD, you could extend your stay under the Doctorate Extension Scheme, look for work, prove yourself and let Sponsor vouch for you after that and all the way to settlement in the UK.
If this is your plan, we have vast experience in helping small and medium-size employers to hire a migrant. We can work with you and your employer at the same time, from analysing a job (whether it qualifies) to Sponsor Licence application, requesting a certificate of sponsorship and all the way to the actual Tier 2 visa.
Option 2 :
your overseas employer may transfer you to their branch in the UK. With so many jobs added on the Shortage List, meaning employers don’t need to seek settled workers first, it will be quicker and easier for the British companies to transfer staff. Avoid Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer, if possible, as it doesn’t lead to settlement. This route is especially useful for IT workers, engineers as well as non-shortage professionals, such as accountants.
Option 3 :
You can apply for jobs from abroad in most in-demand occupations, such as medical professionals including nurses, veterinarians, IT workers, engineers, architects, social workers, occupational therapists, artists, almost all scientists, teachers (maths, physics, computer science and Mandarin) and many others. If you work in the IT and digital technology sector, there is a great shortage of programmers, software developers, web-designers, business analysts, cyber security specialists. Graphic designers are also welcome! With IT workers, there is a trend where you might have been doing work for a UK technology company remotely, as a freelancer, and they would now like you to work full-time for them in the UK. Again, if your Sponsor doesn’t have a licence yet, we can help to obtain it.
Option 4 :
wait and apply under the new points-based system from 1 January 2021. It is very exciting and it will open the doors to more workers from all over the world, not just Europe. You can start looking for a job and a Sponsor now with the view of submitting an application as soon as possible in 2021. Under the new system, jobs at a lower skill level (Level 3, see more below) will be acceptable, without the need for employers to look for settled workers before employing a migrant, plus there will be no annual limit on the incoming workers (i.e. no restricted certificates).
Please see below for detailed information on each visa type.
