The Tier 2 Work Permit category is part of the UK’s new managed migration structure and requires applicants to have a Certificate of Sponsorship (“CoS”). A Certificate of Sponsorship is a unique reference number that a sponsor can issue to a Tier 2 migrant worker whom it wishes to employ in the UK. The CoS will allow the worker to apply for an Entry Clearance or Leave to Remain as a Tier 2 holder to enable them to take up employment with the UK based  sponsoring company.

Tier 2 Work Permit applicants may apply through one of the following categories:

Work Permit - General

The Work Permit category (Tier 2 General) is designed for applicants coming to the United Kingdom with a skilled job offer to fill a gap in the workforce following a thorough residential labour test. Holders of a Tier 2 General visa  can change their job whilst in the UK, however the process of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship (“CoS”) must be repeated.

Intra-Company Transfer

The Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer category is for employees of multi-national companies who are being transferred by an overseas employer to a skilled job in a UK based branch of the organisation. Applicants in this category are exempt from the English Language requirement for the initial three - year period.

Ministers of Religion

Religious workers may seek long-term entry to the UK under the Tier 2  or, Tier 5 scheme if they intend to stay for less than two years and their role does not involve preaching. In both cases, candidates must be sponsored by a religious institution which holds a current Faith Body Endorsement from the relevant faith body.
