tier 2 general

looking for a first-class visa consultant?

Tier 2 General of the UK visa points-based system relates to work permits issued to sponsored employees.

The Tier 2 Visa is designed for both high-skilled and medium-skilled workers who seek UK immigration. It is a necessary requirement that an applicant should have a confirmed offer of employment with a company based in the United Kingdom.

Work Permits are visas that allow a Non-EU citizen to work in a specific role at a UK-based company. Work Permits may be issued for a maximum period of 5 years.

You can apply for dependants to join you in the UK and they will be able to work without restriction. But you need to be able to accommodate and support yourself and dependants without recourse to public funds.
