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.
