Service: Work Visas

Country: UK

Description:
The Tier 2 visa is the main UK visa route for skilled workers coming to the UK to take up employment, usually paying a salary of at least £20,800 per annum for "new entrants" and £30,000 for "experienced workers".

You must apply online for a Tier 2 (General) visa. You'll need to have your fingerprints and photograph taken at a visa application centre (to get a biometric residence permit) as part of your application. You'll have to collect your biometric residence permit within 10 days of when you said you'd arrive in the UK.

Eligibility

You need to:

have a valid certificate of sponsorship for your job

show you’re being paid an appropriate salary for your job

prove your knowledge of English

have personal savings so you can support yourself when you arrive in the UK

show you can travel and your travel history over the last 5 years

have tuberculosis test results if you’re from a listed country

provide a criminal record certificate from any country you’ve lived in for 12 months or more in the last 10 years, if you’ll be working with vulnerable people

You need to have an eligible qualification if you’re switching from a Tier 4 visa.

Certificate of sponsorship

A certificate of sponsorship holds your personal details and information about the job you’ve been offered. It’s an electronic record, not a paper document. Your sponsor will give you a certificate of sponsorship reference number to add to your application.

You can only use your certificate of sponsorship reference number once. You must use it 3 months after getting it.

Appropriate salary

You’ll usually need to be paid at least £30,000 per year or the ‘appropriate rate’ for the job you’re offered - whichever is higher. Check the appropriate rate for the job you’ve been offered.

Check the guidance for situations when you can be paid less - for example if:

you’ll work as a medical radiographer, nurse, paramedic or secondary school teacher in some subjects

you’ll work as a pre-registration nurse or midwife

Personal savings

You must have £945 in your bank account for 90 days before you apply. This is to prove you can support yourself.

You do not need to prove this if you have a fully approved (‘A-rated’) sponsor who can give you at least £945 to cover your costs for a month if you need it. Your sponsor must confirm this on the certificate of sponsorship.

    LACK PLAYBACK VOLUME & DISPLAY MIRRORING.

    If anyone is buying this firestick only because of the volume keys upfront which were missing in the previous models, don't buy this. It doesn't control playback volume of the fire stick instead firestick remote detects the infrared signals of the TV, and controls TV volume. Pretty useless for me as I have bought this to control playback volume of the firestick because my wireless hands free doesn't have any buttons for volume. Thanks to Amazon return policy . I have made the return request. Also this one missing display mirroring I mean why? Other than that new firestick is flowless and more powerful than previous models.
