The UK work permits is a very popular destination for people looking to live and work in the UK as a Highly Skilled Migrant. UK immigration consists of five-tier points based system that scores applicants on various criteria to assess their eligibility to obtain a UK work or study visa. The five-tier points based system encompasses all highly skilled work, study, and training immigration routes into the country. It has undergone a number of changes since its inception in 2008, most notably the removal of Tier 1 (General) for highly skilled migrants in favour of a new Exceptional Talent visa, and a cap on the number of visas available under Tier 1 and Tier 2.
The removal mainly affects overseas applicants. People seeking extensions to their Tier 1 (General) visa are only allowed to apply for indefinite leave to remain. The introduction of the new Graduate Entrepreneur which requires no funds to qualify and those who can switch from Tier 1 visa to Tier 1 Entrepreneur with an investment of only £50,000.
Tier 2 (General) has become the most realistic immigration route for most people living outside of the country who wish to immigrate to the UK as a skilled worker. With all of these changes, navigating the UK immigration system can be a difficult and time-consuming process.
