Tier 2 (General) Visa

Tier 2 (General) Visa

The Tier 2 visa allows skilled workers to enter the UK on a long-term basis to assume a skilled job vacancy in Information Technology, Accounting, Teaching, or Healthcare. The occupation needs to be on the Tier 2 occupation list or Tier 2 Shortage Occupation List. To be able to apply, Tier 2 visa applicants must have a job offer and a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship from a UK employer with a valid Tier 2 sponsorship licence. Tier 2 jobs must usually be advertised to workers from within the European Economic Area (EEA) before they can be offered to non-EEA immigrants, unless the job is on the Tier 2 Shortage Occupations List. This is known as the Resident Labour Market Test. You must have a certificate of sponsorship reference number, meet an appropriate salary and have the required level of English. You must also have in savings – this is to prove you can support yourself. You must have had this in your bank account for 90 days before you apply, unless you are exempt. You do not need to have in savings if your sponsor is fully approved (‘A-rated) and they have stated on your certificate of sponsorship that you won’t claim benefits during your stay.
