Working In The United Kingdom Simplified


The Tier 2 work permit category forms a core component of the UKBA’s points-based system for managed migration.

How To Get A Work Permit

Before you can apply you must satisfy the following work permit requirements:

Have received a confirmed offer of employment from a licensed UK employer who will act as your sponsor; and
Be in possession of a Certificate of Sponsorship issued by your sponsoring employer; and
Pass the points-based assessment, details of which can be found on the category specific work permit pages listed below.



There are three main categories of UK work permit:

Tier 2 General - Skilled Worker
Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer
Tier 2 Sportsperson Visa
The work permit application process is led by the employer who is responsible for issuing you (the applicant) with a Certificate of Sponsorship.


UK Work Permits (General Category) & Permanent Residency

As a UK work permit holder you can qualify for permanent residence if you have lived and worked in the UK for a minimum of five years. Once you have satisfied the five year requirement you may qualify for Indefinite Leave to remain in the UK, which can be then be followed by British Naturalisation as a UK citizen.
