Are you eligible?

You can apply for a UK Skilled Worker visa if:

  • have a valid certificate of sponsorship for your job
  • can show you’re being paid an appropriate salary for your job
  • prove your knowledge of English
  • do a job that is on the list of eligible occupations
  • You must have £1270 in your bank account. 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 £1270 to cover your costs for a month if you need it. Your sponsor must confirm this on the certificate of sponsorship.
  • show you can travel and your travel history over the last 5 years
  • have tuberculosis test results if you’re from a listed country, or you have lived in that country for more than six months within six months preceding your visa application.
  • 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

Getting sponsored?

You need to be employed by a licensed sponsor to apply to live in the UK.

Your sponsor confirms you are eligible for the job. They’ll assign you a certificate of sponsorship to prove this.

They must also give you other information you need when you apply, for example, how much you’ll be paid.

How long will it take?

You can apply for a visa up to 3 months before the day you’re due to start work in the UK. This date is listed on your certificate of sponsorship.

You should get a decision on your visa within 3 weeks when you apply from outside the UK.

Check the guide processing times to find out how long getting a visa might take in your country.

How long you can stay?

You can come to the UK with UK Skilled Worker visa for a maximum of 5 years and 14 days, or the time given on your certificate of sponsorship plus 1 month, whichever is shorter.

Your stay must start no more than 14 days before the start date on your certificate of sponsorship.

You can apply to extend this visa for up to another 5 years, as long as your total stay is not more than 6 years.

What you can and can't do?

You can:

  • work for your sponsor in the job described in your certificate of sponsorship
  • do a second job in certain circumstances
  • do voluntary work
  • study as long as it does not interfere with the job you’re sponsored for
  • travel abroad and return to the UK
  • bring family members with you

You cannot:

  • get public funds
  • change jobs or employer unless you apply to update your visa

A word of warning

If you make a mistake on your visa application or fail to provide the correct supporting documentation, your application will be refused, and UKVI will not refund your visa fee. Furthermore, your sponsor will have to provide a new Certificate of Sponsorship number, and this may take 4-6 weeks to obtain. TWHC’s experienced staff have an in-depth knowledge of UK visa categories as well as processes and will ensure that you get it right first time.

The visa guarantee disclaimer

*All visa guarantee refunds are assessed on a case by case basis. Visas rejected based on past criminal records, traffic offences, previous refusals, any undisclosed information or historical immigration discrepancies relevant to your application are not eligible for a refund from TWHC. We reserve the right to waive the visa guarantee should your circumstances warrant it, but this will be agreed in writing before progressing with your application. All applicants with a criminal conviction and/or traffic offences are not entitled to the NV/NF guarantee.

**All applicants are required to disclose any/all past criminal and/or serious traffic related offences and previous visa refusals for any country. Failure to disclose this information could lead to your application being rejected by the UK Visas and Immigration and could lead to a subsequent 10-year ban. TWHC cannot be held responsible for rejections or bans imposed by the UK Visas and Immigration on account of undisclosed information. If your visa application is rejected or denied based on a mistake made by TWHC staff, your original service fee will be refunded in full, and TWHC will pay for the cost of your re-application. Visa re-application is only applicable if we deem your application to be valid upon the correction of the original mistake made. In the event of an approved visa guarantee re-application, we can only re-apply for the same visa as the original denied application (you cannot switch visa categories).
