What is Tier 2 General Visa UK?

7개월 전

The Tier 2 General Visa UK is the work visa, which can be granted to highly skilled workers from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland, who have a job offer for a skilled job or a job in the shortage List. To qualify to apply for this tier 2 visa, you must have a job offer by a licensed sponsor in the UK. Also, you should provide a certificate of sponsorship issued by the employer as a proof. If you have a tier 2 general work visa, you will be allowed to travel outside the UK. You can also bring dependents including your partner and children or other family members to the UK on a tier 2 dependent visa.
