The UK Work Permit scheme is a term used for an immigration category that includes a number of employment visas for non-EEA citizens.

Point-Based System

Currently, to acquire a UK work permit you will be assessed on a points-based system, with the Tier 1 visa the most popular option for highly-skilled workers seeking to live and work in the United Kingdom. The work visa is available to 5 general groups: entrepreneurs, exceptional talents, graduate entrepreneurs, investors, workers experienced in particular high-qualified fields.

Highly-Skilled Employees

Please note that a valid job offer from an UK company is required in order to apply for a work permit.

You will be required to prove that you have sufficient ability and competence to carry out your job to the required standard. The National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) has determined 8 levels of competence, and a non-EEA citizen must score qualify for Level 3 or above.

Duration

The duration of the UK work permit is between 1 and 60 months, depending on the time requested by the sponsoring company. You are not allowed to work for another employer during your stay in UK. If you decide to do so, you will have to apply for the work permit again.

Dependants

Your spouse or civil partner is granted UK entrance and full employment rights. You must be either married or have a civil partnership. The immigration authorities will also investigate your intention to live together.

Hi Tanya Thanks for getting my visa all set up. Just for curiosities sake. How come your visa prices are so low? You were the only company I found offering the visa lower than £171? Obviously I am very happy with that but just curious. Cheers, Justine
