Skilled Worker Route (Tier 2 General Visa)


Skilled Worker Route opened on 01 December 2020, replacing The Tier 2 General Visa is for individuals who are coming to the UK to take up employment. The new Skilled Worker Route Visa is more flexible comparing to the Tier 2 General route. The new point-based system requires an applicant, who is a skilled worker to have a job offer from an approved employer sponsor.


Main eligibility requirements for Skilled Worker Route:

· From January 2021, the offered position will need to be at a required skill level of RQF3 or above

· The job should have a minimum general salary of £25,600

· Applicant have a job offer in the UK from an employer that holds a Tier 2 Sponsor License

· A valid certificate of sponsorship should be issued by the sponsor for the position

· The applicant should be from a non-EEA country 

· Applicant must have enough additional funds to support themselves without relying on public funds

· Evidence of meeting the level of English language


The sponsor will need to show that there is no suitable settled worker to fill the role in the UK. In most cases, the company will need to prove that they have undertaken a genuine ‘Resident Labour Market Test’. This means that the role must be advertised for at least 28 days in two places and no suitable settled worker has applied or/and pass through the interview.


Visa Extension and Settlement (ILR)

A skilled Worker visa allows a migrant to stay on the new skilled worker visa for as long as he or she continues to satisfy the route. The visa can last for up to 5 years before you need to extend it. If the visa holder wants to stay longer in the UK, it is possible to apply for ILR (Settlement) after 5 years. This will give the right to live, work and study in the UK for as long as the applicant wants, and apply for benefits if eligible. After 6 years, it is possible to apply for British citizenship provided all requirements have been met.
