Tier 2 General!

From 1st of Jan 2021 ‘Free Movement’ has stopped. Anyone outside the UK will need to apply for visa in order to work in the UK (even EU nationals)

Skilled Worker Visa category has replaced the ‘Tier 2 General’ visas . people can apply to come to the UK under new point based system. You would still need a job offer from an  approved employer (the sponsor) 

You will need minimum of 70 points under different characteristics, some of these are tradeable. You will be able to claim points for your qualifications, English level, job skill level, salary and if your job is in the skill shortage category

You can apply for dependents 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 dependents without recourse to public funds.

If you are looking to apply for Skilled Worker visa, please feel free to contact us at UVS. We can discuss the main requirements and the different characteristics under which you can claim points. we can calculate your points to see if you are eligible to apply.

We can also help your employer to apply for Sponsorship Licence, if they already not have one.
