Skilled Worker Visa UK

What is Skilled Worker Visa?

The Skilled Worker visa category is for foreign nationals who have been offered a skilled job by a UK employer holding Skilled Worker sponsor license. The Skilled Worker visa has replaced Tier 2 General Migrant visa from 1 December 2020.

According to paragraph 6 of the Immigration Rules, a “Skilled Worker” means a person who has, or had, permission under Appendix Skilled Worker, or as a Tier 2 (General) migrant under the rules in force before 1 December 2020.

A UK employer who wishes to sponsor a migrant worker for work visa must have a sponsor licence issued by the Home Office UKVI. The spnosor licence is normally granted by the Home Office UKVI for a period of 4 years and can be renewed for further 4 years prior to its expiry.
