If you are employed by an overseas company that has a branch in the UK, you may be able to apply for a Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa to allow you to work there. This visa gives non-UK citizens the opportunity to accept a job offer in a UK branch of the international company they are employed by.

Being offered a position in an overseas branch is a very exciting stage in your career, so you want to make sure nothing gets in the way. Here at Stevens Machi Solicitors we can provide you with expert immigration law advice and representation throughout the entire visa application procedure. Get in touch with our team today to find out how we can help.

Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa: Categories

The Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa is divided into four different types that vary in terms of the length of the transfer, the role the applicant has been offered and the maximum length of time the visa holder can stay in the UK. The four different types of visa are:

  • Long-term staff.
  • Short-term staff.
  • Graduate trainee.
  • Skills transfer.

It is important to identify and apply for the right type of Tier 2 Visa. If you get it wrong, you could face delays and additional costs in re-submitting. The team at Stevens Machi Solicitors will explain the requirements for each type of Tier 2 Visa and, based on your situation, suggest the most appropriate option.

Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa: Sponsorship

Your employer must provide you with a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ so that you can apply for a Tier 2 Visa. The certificate of sponsorship is, in fact, a reference number that holds details about you, your employer and the job you have been offered. It acts as a confirmation that you can carry out the role and that you intend to do so.

The certificate of sponsorship is valid for three months, so it is vital your application is completed and submitted in a timely manner. Stevens Machi Solicitors can help you get your visa quickly and without stress.

Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa: Eligibility

To qualify for the Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa, you must be a citizen from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland. You must also:

  • have been offered a job in a UK branch of your overseas employer;
  • provide a certificate of sponsorship number;
  • have a sufficient salary;
  • have a sufficient amount of money in savings.

The salary amount required will depend on the type of Tier 2 Visa you are applying for. For example, for long-term staff, the appropriate salary is £41,500 and above. However, you will also qualify if you are considered to earn the ‘appropriate rate’ for the position.

Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa: Documents

To support your Tier 2 application, you will need to provide documentary evidence of your identity and circumstances. This can include:

  • Your passport or other accepted travel identification.
  • Bank statements to prove you have sufficient funds in your account.
  • Proof of employment.
  • Payslips to prove you have worked for your employer for a certain amount of time.

If you do not produce all the required information, your application could be delayed or cancelled. Our immigration solicitors can keep you right. We will make sure your application is supported by the correct paperwork, saving you the time and cost of resubmitting a failed application.
