The UK Tier 2 visa replaced the old UK work permit scheme in 2008. Tier 2 is designed for applicants with a UK employer who want to sponsor them in a skilled occupation. Like the Tier 1 visa the application is points-based. In order to apply for the Tier 2, you must already have an offer of employment and your employer must have obtained a sponsorship license from the UK Border Agency. To be eligible for this visa you must have…
- An offer of skilled employment from a licensed sponsoring employer within the UK.
- Qualifications and experience relating to the role on offer.
- Prove that you are qualified for the role on offer. Your employer must be able to demonstrate that the role cannot be filled by a suitably qualified or experienced resident worker.
The correct terminology for full or permanent residency in the UK is Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). ILR allows you to remain in the UK for an indefinite period; on condition you intend to remain present and settled there. If you leave the country for a continuous period of 2 years or more, it is usually deemed by the authorities that you are no longer present and settled, and you may have your ILR revoked.
- You can apply for ILR following 5 continuous years on the one type of visa such as Ancestry, Tier 1 or Tier 2.
- You can also qualify for ILR following 2 years on a settlement visa such as married/unmarried partner of British citizens or permanent residents.
- ILR can only be applied for whilst you are present in the UK and you must remain in the UK while the application is under consideration.
You may apply for this visa if you are in a long-term relationship with a British citizen or a person who has settlement status in the UK. The visa allows you to work freely in the UK. In order to apply for it you must be able to support yourselves, and your dependants if you have any, without recourse to public funds and intend to live with your partner permanently. You and your partner must be able to provide.
- Evidence that you have been living together in a relationship akin to a marriage for 2 years or more.
- The relationship may be a heterosexual or a same-sex relationship.
You may apply for this visa if you are married to a British citizen, or person who has settlement status in the UK (i.e. a person who holds indefinite leave to remain (ILR) or right of abode. The visa, which is initially issued for a 2-year probationary period, allows you to work without restriction and to exit and re-enter the UK multiple times. At the end of the probationary period, you must submit evidence to the Home Office that you have been living together for that time, after which you may be eligible to apply for ILR yourself. In order to apply for this visa you and your spouse must:
- Be lawfully married to one another.
- Intend to live together permanently as man and wife.
- Be able to support yourselves and your dependant children should you have any.
