Tier 2 Work Visa

If you are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland and you have been offered a skilled job in the UK, which is sponsored by a UK company who holds a Sponsor License. You will be issued with a Certificate of sponsorship from your licensed sponsor and the reference number will need to be included on your application form. As this visa is under the points-based system this certificate is one of the requirements to obtain the necessary points. Under this category the type of visa you will need depends on the type of work you are planning to undertake in the UK.

You can apply up to three months before you are due to start your job and generally receive a decision within three weeks, unless further information is required. You can start your stay up to fourteen days before your start date on your Certificate of Sponsorship.

Our team of experts will guide and support you through the whole process to provide the best chances of a successful application. We will assess your eligibility, advise on the best course of action along with the required documentation. We will support your application with a Letter of Representation highlighting the merits of your case and relating this to the relevant UK law.  We will liaise with the Home Office and your sponsor to maximise chances of success.
