Skilled Worker Visa

The Tier 2 (General) work visa is now replaced by the Skilled Worker Visa. After a successful application it will allow an applicant to enter as an employee with an approved employer in the UK .

Those individuals who are from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, and you started living in the UK before 1st January 2021, you can apply for the free EU Settlement Scheme. This means that you would not need to get a visa to work in the UK. Irish citizens do not need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme or a visa.

There are certain requirements which must be met:

1) Age -you must be aged 18 or over

2)  Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) 

3) Your job is a genuine vacancy

4) Your role is at an appropriate level

5) You will be paid a salary which equals or exceeds the general salary threshold and the “going rate” for your occupation

6) Your sponsor has paid the required Immigration Skills Charge

7) You can demonstrate your English proficiency (at least CEFR Level B1)

8) You can financially sustain yourself and your family without relying on public funds

9) You can provide a criminal record certificate

10) You can provide a valid TB certificate (if needed)

There is a possibility of Settlement under this route!
