Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer Visa

Tier 2 ICT is a UK work visa for the skilled worker of a multinational company working in a foreign branch with a minimum of 1-year work experience in such a company. The multinational organization generally utilizes this visa route to get skilled employees on-board from an overseas office, sister company, or a subsidiary to fill a position in the UK office to which they are unable to find a talented candidate locally. 

Usually, IT and tech companies use the Intra-company Transfer to get talented professionals from their overseas offices. However, the policies and pre-requisites introduced by the UK government, including minimum income thresholds and immigration skills charge, have made it quite difficult for the companies to transfer talent to the UK. Due to the ever-changing point-based system of the UK Visa and Immigration, businesses should acquaint themselves with immigration developments to know the latest updates.   

Being top solicitors in London, Sindhu Immigration Services assist you in making an informed decision and help you out in getting the most talented employee to your UK office. Hence, whether you need your offshore employees for a specific project or a long-term position, we will ensure that they will be working on the project soon.

Getting Sponsored

If you want to get a Tier 2 ICT Visa, a licensed sponsor must have appointed you in the UK. The sponsor checks out whether you can do the job and are qualified for the visa or not. Later followed by a sponsorship certificate to prove that you are eligible to move to the UK branch. You need to get other information in hand and what you will get paid, and at which post you will be working.

Sole Representative of Overseas Business Visa

For the businessmen who want to establish a strong commercial presence in the UK, a representative overseas business visa is the most suitable route. This visa route allows you to open up a subsidiary or a UK branch of an overseas parent company. Furthermore, the company should be a genuine commercial enterprise having the principal services somewhere outside the UK, European Economic Area, and Switzerland. The best law firms can help you with the pre-requisites of getting entry by the representative of the overseas business route. 


Who Can Be A Sole Representative of Overseas Business?

Anyone who is from outside the EEA and Switzerland, who is the sole representative of overseas business can apply to come to the UK. The applicant should be either:

  • The sole representative of an overseas commercial company who is planning to set up a wholly owned subsidiary or a UK branch for the parent company
  • A talented employee of an overseas news agency, newspaper, or a broadcasting organization who will be employed on a long-term assignment in the UK

The sole representative should have been employed by the parent company at which the initial clearance is applied at any point. The UK subsidiary can hire a representative later at any time. However, when the employed person no longer has the responsibility at the executive role for the directions and operations of the subsidiary, they will have to switch to a Tier 2 visa route followed by the point-based system. Get in touch with experienced solicitors in central London to know further details.


What Will You Get?

If you get the visa under this category, then you will get an entry clearance of 3 years, which in some cases can be further extended to 2 more years. You can also qualify for indefinite leave to remain in the UK once you have completed 5 years of continuous residence under this category. You can extend the stay after three years if:

  • The parent company and principal place of operation remain outside the UK even if the UK subsidiary/branch overshadows the parent company.
  • The branch or subsidiary is actively trading
  • The UK brand/subsidiary is operating and offering the same services as that of the parent company
  • The parent company verifies that it still needs the representative

Innovator Visa

For entrepreneurs who have a new business idea or are already running a business outside the UK and now aiming to expand it, the Innovator Visa route is ideal for entering the UK. It is applicable for sole proprietors or partnership businesses the same as that of the abolished Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa; innovators can, too, form a team. 

You can apply for the settlement status and eventually for British citizenship being on the Innovator Visa. Once the business idea gets the endorsement from a registered endorsing body, all you are required to do is start a company, be an active part of developing the business idea in the UK and other markets, grow the business, create jobs and revenue. You should make sure to stick to and consummate the initial projects you were entitled to when you first applied for the Innovator Visa.

To be eligible for the Innovator Visa category, you need to invest your money in a new business idea in the UK premises, which means you cannot invest in or join an already established and running a business.

Sponsor Licence Application

Are you a UK-based organization that plans to employ a non-EEA or non-EU applicant on a Tier 2 Visa? Then you should have a valid Tier 2 sponsor licence. Many sponsor licence applications get rejected because they fail to correctly fill in required information or don’t attach supporting documents. It can result in the wastage of working hours, and the process of repeating the application can be daunting.  

In most cases, once you get a refusal, the applicant can’t apply again for the sponsor licence within the next six months for the same company. Additionally, the cooling period can be longer depending upon the specific case. Thus, the best practice is to hand over the task to a professional to get the job done. 


Tier 2 Sponsor Licence Application

In many cases, the employer needs to run a resident labour market test to employ someone on a Tier 2 General Visa to show that no one could do the job frequently than the overseas applicant. However, this isn’t the requirement of the Tier 2 intra-company transfer visa scheme. If you are hiring a worker for a position on the Shortage Occupation List, you might not be required to post the job and undergo other formalities. 

The Tier 2 sponsor registration process can be complicated. The employer needs to send a detailed cover letter of several pages to the UK Visa and Immigration with all the necessary documents to answer the Home Office’s queries and concerns. However, you don’t need to worry about anything. Our experts will be assisting you in creating a letter to answer all the probable answers to speed up the process and minimize the chances of refusal. 



Sponsor Licence Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for applying for a Tier 2 sponsor licence, the organization must provide the proofs that:

  • It is operating legally in the UK
  • The HR department is capable of managing all the sponsorship duties
  • The employment positions are genuine and suitable for Tier 2 skill requirements
  • The vacancies meet the minimum salary requirement
  • The appointed Key personnel are dependable and of good character


How Can Sindhu Immigration Services Help You?

Our team of Visa and Sponsor Licence experts can assist you with the application in the following ways:

  • A consultation session to decide if the Tier 2 sponsor licence is the best choice for you
  • Completing, checking, and evaluating your Tier 2 Sponsor licence application form
  • Advising and assisting with drafting the advertisement to meet the Resident Labour Market Test
  • Managing and submitting all the supporting documents
  • Preparing a detailed covering letter with all the additional information
  • Guidance on the HR and employment practices to ensure they comply with the set standards
  • Advice on passing the site visits


Sponsor Licence Renewal

You need to renew the Tier 2 sponsor visa every 4 years, and if you fail to submit the application on or below the expiration date, then the license will eventually lapse. It should be noted that the application doesn’t need approval before the expiration date, and it can be under consideration. 


How Can Sindhu Immigration Services Ltd Help You in Preparing for Renewal?

The documentation and other renewal requirements can be challenging to comply with; thus, you need help from a professional to achieve the best outcomes. Indeed, a delay in the renewal application can disrupt the business activities as talented workers will no longer work on the projects.

  • Validating the supporting documents
  • Thoroughly checking the business activities
  • Rigorous audit of the HR department
  • Ensuring the presence of the key personnel
