What are UK Work Visas?

Simply put, a UK work visa is a legal document that gives you the authority to work in the United Kingdom. There are several different types of work visas, based on the type of job, your qualifications, and where you come from.

Eligibility Criteria & Types of UK Work Visas

The first thing to understand about UK work visas is the eligibility criteria. It mainly depends on the type of job you have and your nation of origin.

  • General work visa (Tier 2): This is for people who have received a job offer in the UK from a company that is licensed to sponsor visas.
  • Health and Care visa (Tier 2): Designed specifically for qualified doctors, nurses, and health professionals who have a confirmed job offer in the UK’s health sector.
  • Intra-company Transfer visa (Tier 2): This allows employees of multinational companies to move to a UK branch of the company.
  • Temporary Worker visas (Tier 5): These visas are for certain types of seasonal or short-term work.
  • Youth Mobility Scheme visa (Tier 5): This is designed for young people (18-30 years) from certain countries who want to live, work, or study in the UK for up to 2 years.
