This category of visa sounds very self-explanatory to an individual, like where an organization wishes to transfer its employees to the UK within the same organization. However, it may not be comprehended so easily. Let our UK Intra Company Transfer visa consultant in Bangalore break this for you in 2 simple categories.

When an overseas business locates a new office or a factory in the UK, many seek to recruit their own specialist staff from their overseas company to move their business forward. In this category, the employer transfers its employees to a UK branch of the organization, either on a long-term basis or for a shorter duration. There are 2 sub-categories which are covered by this route:

Long-term staff

  • This is primarily for established, skilled employees to be transferred to the UK branch of their organization for more than 12 months to fill a post that cannot be filled by a new recruit from the UK resident workforce. Employees should be employed with an overseas company for 12 months or the job in the UK would have to pay £73,900 a year.
    Our UK Intra Company Transfer visa consultant in Bangalore is always updated with the upcoming changes in the UK Business Immigration as the Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer visa has been subject to considerable amendment in recent years such as with the closure of the Tier 2 Intra- Company Transfer (Short Term Staff) category on 6th April 2017, the rules have been kept relaxed for the graduate trainee’s scheme provisions.

Graduate trainee

  • This route allows for workers with a recent degree level or above qualification who are filling a position in the UK on a graduate trainee program – such as any research specialist or an IT role. Applicants for this category must have been employed and/or trained by the company overseas for at least 3 months.

We assist a whole range of companies of varying sizes to transfer their staff from their overseas branch to their UK counterpart. Our UK Intra Company Transfer visa consultant in Bangalore can help you plan to ensure that you meet your start date and ensure you have complied with the immigration requirements. The tier 2 Intra Company Transfer visa is subject to more change in the coming months.
