Skilled Worker Visa

 

A Skilled Worker visa allows you to come to or stay in the UK to do an eligible job with an approved employer.

This visa has replaced the Tier 2 (General) work visa.

Eligibility

To qualify for a Skilled Worker visa, you must:

  • work for a UK employer that’s been approved by the Home Office

  • have a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ from your employer with information about the role you’ve been offered in the UK

  • do a job that’s on the list of eligible occupations

  • be paid a minimum salary - how much depends on the type of work you do

The specific eligibility depends on your job.

You must be able to speak, read, write and understand English. You’ll usually need to prove your knowledge of English when you apply.

Your visa can last for up to 5 years before you need to extend it. You’ll need to apply to extend or update your visa when it expires or if you change jobs or employer. 

After 5 years, you may be able to apply to settle permanently in the UK (also known as ‘indefinite leave to remain’).
