This category is for employees of multinational companies who are being transferred by their overseas employer to a UK branch of the organization, either on a long-term basis or for frequent short visits. You can apply for the Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer if you are an employee of an overseas organization that is linked by common ownership or control to the UK entity. If the two companies are not related, you will need to apply for the UK Tier 2 General Visa.

In order to apply for the UK Intracompany transfer you need to have a job offer and a Certificate of sponsorship form an organization that is a licensed sponsor in the UK. The approximate processing time for the UK Intra-company transfer is 2-3 months. The maximum period of stay under this category is 5 years. In some cases for highly-paid occupations, the maximum period of stay is up to 9 years.

Tier 2 IntraCompany Transfer Categories

  • Long-term staff - if you have been working for your organization for at least 12 months directly prior to your transfer and are being transferred to a skilled job in the UK to fill a position which cannot be filled by a UK employee. You can get a visa for up to 5 years (3 years with the option to get an extension for further 2 years). In cases where the occupation is highly-paid with a salary over GBP 150,000 this visa can be issued for up to 9 years;
  • Short-term staff - if you have been working for your organization for at least 12 months prior to your transfer and there is no suitable UK employee to fill the position you can get a visa for up to 12 months.
  • Graduate Trainee – you can apply under this stream if you are a recent graduate employee of an organization and need to be transferred to a UK branch of the same organization, as part of a training programme. You must be coming to the UK as part of a structured graduate training programme with clearly defined progression towards a managerial or specialist role within your organization.
  • Skills Transfer –this stream will be suitable for you if you are employed overseas and are being transferred to a UK branch of the same organization to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to perform your role overseas, or to impart your specialist skills to the UK workforce. You are not required to have been employed for a minimum period to qualify for this sub-category. You can get a visa for up to 6 months.

Hi Antonia, I just want to take a moment to thank you for all the help you've given me and Mary, we received our visas today. I was expecting to wait another 2 weeks, but after 1 week we've received them. You've been very helpful throughout this whole process, I will definitely be recommending you to whoever I might meet that needs a visa. Thanks again Neil and Mary

Hello Kimberly, I just wanted to thank you and Lisa for all your help in my visa process. I really appreciated it. You both made it so easy to get a visa. I had a bit of an "ordeal" until I was directed to visafirst. Alot of people I spoke to before finding out about your company seemed to have no idea - you guys did! So I wanted to thank you. Kind Regards Claire Quodling

Reece Thorpe

Hi Ross, Thank you for the wonderful news! I was thinking that this could be taking a little bit longer time. It will be no problem with the entry, I am returning at the end of July. Thank you for the great work, and I look forward to future collaboration with VISAFIRST.

Hi, My name is Carl Batchelor, I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Annie Rogers who helped me through the process of obtaining my Australian Working Holiday Visa. I am writing this letter of reccomendation to Visa First to highlight the positive customer service and care I recieved by Annie. She was patient, polite and very informative and I hope this letter goes a small way of thanking her and also bringing to your attention what a star you have in your team. I am a very happy customer and would definately recommend your services to friends and family. Many Thanks Carl Batchelor
