As of November 2008, the Tier 2 work visa has replaced the former work permit. Our team are specialists at assisting our clients through the Tier 2 work visa application process and advising on their compliance duties.
To apply for any of the above visas, you must have a job offer and a CoS from an organisation that is a licenced Home Office sponsor in the UK. As this is a points-based application, you must score a minimum of 70 points (or 60 points if applying for an ICT visa).
In addition to having a CoS, you must also be able to meet maintenance and English language requirements.
Our immigration solicitors regularly work with clients and meet with organisations which do not have a business Sponsor Licence to explore their options of hiring non-EU migrants within their business.
The Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) applies to temporary, non-EEA migrants who are coming to the UK for more than 6 months, such as Tier 2 Work Visa applicants.
Payment for IHS is collected by the Home Office and goes directly to the National Health Service.
Our expert solicitors will consider whether you will need to pay the IHS and advise you accordingly. For more information on all your options please contact our friendly team today.
Our immigration solicitors have many years of experience in preparing visa applications for Tier 2 Work Visa applicants either from outside the UK or within.
Our doors are always open for you, come at any time and have a cup of tea with us!
