// How to Find a Tier 2 Job Faster30th November 2017What is your goal in life? If you think that the UK is the ideal place for you to get the training, exposure and skills you need to succeed in your career, you are right.But where do you even begin? When, where and how can you find these companies that can sponsor your Tier 2 visa?

What is a Tier 2 Visa?A Tier 2 visa will allow you to work in the UK, if you are from outside the United Kingdom and European Economic Area (EEA). There are four different types of Tier 2 Visa, including:. Tier 2 (General) Visa. Tier 2 (Intra Company Transfer) Visa (a.k.a. Tier 2 ICT visa). Tier 2 (Sportsperson) Visa. Tier 2 (Minister of religion) VisaThis guide will cover Tier 2 (General) Visas for workers, because this is by far the most common option for people.If you are an employer and are interested in acquiring a sponsor’s licence for a tier 2 Visa, we will write a separate guide for that.

Can I have dependants (spouse or children) on a Tier 2 Visa?Yes. As long your dependants satisfy the Tier 2 requirements, they can get permission to join you and stay in the UK.The following people are ‘dependants’ for the purpose of a Tier 2 visa:.

Your spouse, civil partner, unmarried partner or same-sex partner; or. Your dependant children. Example: Sharif wants to come to the UK to work for a large IT company.Since he does not want to leave his wife and two children, they can also join him in the UK as dependants – as long as they meet the requirements.For guidance relating specifically to dependants, you can have a look at the that has been written specifically for dependants. Can you be on a Tier 2 visa category for longer than 6 years at a time?For most people, the answer is no.


When should I apply for a tier 2 visa?It is absolutely necessary to understand three things here.First, you have to apply within 3 months of your Certificate of Sponsorship being assigned. The relevant date here will be the date specified on the Certificate of Sponsorship.Second, you must not apply earlier than 3 months before the Certificate of Sponsorship’s start date.Finally, if you are applying from inside the UK, it is critical that you apply before your current visa expires. If you do not do this, you will be regarded as an over-stayer.Being an over-stayer is something that can be very detrimental to you, not only because it is a criminal act (honestly!), but it may negatively affect any future applications. Can a Tier 2 Visa lead to Indefinite Leave to remain (ILR)?Yes. The requirements for Indefinite Leave to remain (ILR) are different depending on whether you arrived in the UK on or after 6 April 2011.If you were given a Tier 2 Visa before 6 April 2011, in brief, you can settle after 5 years of continuous & lawful residence – as long as you are still with the same employer who holds the sponsor licence. Here, you can include any time spent under Tier 1 Visas and other pre-Points Based System employment categories.If you were given a tier 2 visa on or after 6 April 2011, there is the extra requirement of having to be earning a minimum sum (usually around £35,000), or are alternatively in a PhD-level job or are in a job that has been on the shortage occupation list.Indefinite leave to remain is not considered in depth here but we are currently working on writing a guide for that – so stay tuned! Will I be exempt from the Resident Labour Market Test?There are several circumstances that will mean that your employer will not have to conduct the Resident Labour Market Test.The most common reason why people are exempt from the Resident Labour Market Test is if their salary(as stated on the Certificate of Sponsorship) is £159,600 or more.There are also provisions relating to doctors or dentists in training, those who are in research positions.

The Tier 2 shortage occupation list – what is this and how does it affect me?The shortage occupation list is a list of occupations that are in high demand in the UK.The important thing to understand is that, if your desired occupation is on this list (which is updated fairly often), your sponsoring employer is generally not required to perform the Resident Labour Market Test.This is good – the less hassle your prospective employer has to go through, the better it is for you!The shortage occupation list can be found. What should I do if my employer’s licence gets suspended?If your employer’s licence gets suspended after you submit your Tier 2 application but have not yet heard from the Home Office, your application will also be suspended. The Home Office will then decide on the application after they have decided what they will be doing with your employer.If, on the other hand, you are already in employment with your sponsor, you will be allowed to continue working up until the point your employer’s licence if withdrawn. Obviously, if the employer’s licence is not revoked but instead re-instated, then you will not be impacted.If it is found that you are implicated in the reasons that resulted in your employer’s licence being suspended, your leave will be immediately curtailed.In the event that your employer’s licence is revoked, you will receive a letter of notification likely stating that you will have 60 days remaining on your visa – if you were not implicated in the reasons for revocation.
