FAQs - ICT Visa UK

Can I apply for ILR as Tier 2 ICT or ICTmigrant upon completion of 5 years in the UK on ICT visa?

No, you cannot apply for ILR as ICT migrant becuase Intra Company Transfer (ICT) visa category does not lead to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after 5 years.

Following changes to the immigration rules effective from 1 December 2020, ICT migrants are now allowed to switch into Skilled Worker visa from inside the UK and they can apply for ILR as Skilled Workers once they have spent 5 years in the UK under Skilled Worker visa category.
