The Tier 2 Skilled Worker route is the main visa route by which non-EEA skilled workers come to work in the UK. A UK firm or organisation which holds a Tier 2 sponsor licence is able to employ Tier 2 migrants.
The two main types of Tier 2 visa are Tier 2 General and Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer (often called “Tier 2 ICT”).
Tier 2 General Visa
The Tier 2 General route enables non-EEA skilled workers to come to the UK – or in some circumstances to remain in the UK and switch visas – to work in a specific job for a specific employer.
The job must be skilled to at least NQF level 6, and in every case, the employer must pay at least a stated minimum salary. The salary varies from job to job.
There is a B1 English language requirement and close family members (partner and minor children) can apply as dependants.
Tier 2 General visas can be granted for up to five years, and it may be possible to obtain settlement after five years.
Tier 2 ICT Visa
The Tier 2 ICT visa enables a senior employee of an international company to come to the UK to work in a skilled job in a UK branch of the company.
There is no English language requirement and close family members (partner and minor children) can apply as dependants.
This visa only confers limited leave and does not provide a route to settlement.
Only a firm or organisation which holds a Tier 2 sponsor licence can employ Tier 2 migrants, and the Tier 2 sponsor licence application process is quite difficult. And in some cases, the employer needs to advertise the position before they are able to sponsor a Tier 2 migrant and there may also be other complexities that the employer has to deal with.
At Get UK Visa we have extensive experience of both Tier 2 visa applications and Tier 2 sponsor license applications, and we may be able to help you.
Thank for all support to get my visa resident and big hug for Adonis who phone me form Uk to give all direction On weekend .. Super recommend 5* thank you all from Get Uk visa
First of all we want to thank everyone at GET UK VISA for everything they have done. Mr Kouros Adonis and Mr Oliver Westmoreland along with Mr Teimoory, Manija Haschemi and Maryam Pourseyedi are the most amazing, caring, professional, knowledgeable, honest and determined team I have ever encountered. I only wish and hope everyone in helping individuals, couples and families with immigration matters would be as incredible as they are. It is an honour to be lucky enough to have met each one of them and to be able to share our experience with everyone. Without them our dear friends child would not have survived in our birth country and now father and son would never have been able to be reunited. That dream has become a reality and now they are able to be together once again. Many thanks, Ms S. Mansouri
