London (PRWEB UK) 29 August 2013
Tier 2 visa is an immigration category for highly skilled migrants who work for a licenced employer in the UK. An application for a Tier 2 visa can be made from abroad or within the UK by those who already have a Tier 2 visa and need a variation or extension, or by those whose immigration category permits switching into Tier 2.
Applications can be made by post or in person at the Public Enquiry Office for same day processing.
Tier 2 visa cannot be held for a period exceeding six years. After five years in this category Tier 2 General migrants qualify to apply for indefinite leave to remain. Where for any reason they do not qualify for settlement, they have the option of applying for entrepreneur visa or leave the country.
Tier 2 visa holders who are changing employment have to receive a new visa before they can start a new job. Similarly, Tier 2 visa holders whose terms of employment are about to change may need to apply for a new visa to reflect the new circumstances. Since postal applications may take months to be decided, premium service is of substantial benefit as it may help avoid lengthy gaps between employments and loss of income.
It is extremely important that the applications are prepared correctly, as additional documents cannot be submitted at a later stage and a simple mistake may lead to a visa refusal. Particular attention should be paid by the employers of migrant worker to the information on the certificate of sponsorship – a salary which does not match the requirements of the associated code under the Standard of Occupational Classifications would lead to a refusal of the application and potentially to a requirement for the migrant to leave the country without the right of return in Tier 2 category for the next 12 months.
