Domestic Worker Visa Applications

A Domestic Worker Visa allows overseas employers to bring their domestic workers with them when they visit the UK for up to 6 months. Our team are specialists in assisting clients through the application process.

A domestic worker may include a cleaner, chauffeur, gardener, cook, carer in a private household for the employer or a member of the employer’s family, and nannies. They must only work in their employer’s residence whilst in the United Kingdom and must have worked with the employer for a minimum of one year before making the visa application.

The applicant will be permitted to stay in the UK for up to 6 months, however, they must return home at the end of this period or when their employer returns home, whichever is sooner. As part of the new regulations, they are not allowed to change employer while they are in the UK or change to a different type of employment. 

It is currently not possible to extend permission to stay past 6 months or past the time that their employer is in the UK.

The applicant is also required to have a written undertaking that clearly states the terms and
conditions of the individual appointment with their employer including that their employer is willing
to abide by the national minimum wage law of the United Kingdom.

You are permitted to stay in the UK if your employer takes a short trip to another country during the
visit and also travel abroad and return to the UK to complete your stay, though you must prove you
still, work for your employer.

If you applied for a domestic worker visa before 5th April 2012, you might be eligible to apply for
indefinite leave to remain after five years of continuous employment in this category.

  • I’ve been dealing with Rosie for a few months now, after withdrawing from a property we continued to use her for the purchase of our new one. Rosie’s changed my perception of solicitors as she always acted in my best interests, always responds very promptly to any questions (regardless of how silly). I will certainly be recommending Rosie to friends and family. I’m sure we will have dealings in the future. Value for money is seconded to none. 
    Thanks again

  • We recently used DV Solicitors for the purchase of a commercial property. Mr Nasar Ali was our solicitor. It isn’t easy with any commercial mortgage especially Lloyds but as Mr Ali’s experience showed he was excellent from start to finish. Always keeping us up to date with what was happening. Probably have about 30+ emails from him lol. Great guy, excellent service, very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use and definitely recommend. 👍

  • We have used Deo Volente for the first time rewriting our wills and making changes to property ownership. Ms Farida Ahmed talked us through the process by telephone in a friendly and helpful manner. Based on our experience I would use their service again and would recommend them.
