Move from Tier 5 Youth Mobility to Tier 2 General
Now that Tier 1 General has been cancelled many professional Accountants from Australia and New Zealand are finding Tier 2 General the only way to remain in the UK long term.
Tier 2 General is an employer sponsored visa with an initial approval term of 3 years, however the visa may be extended for a further 2 years. It is not possible to ‘switch’ in country from Tier 5 to Tier 2 therefore a fresh application must be submitted back home however approval times are short (1-2 weeks in total) so you could be back before you know it.
If you are an experienced accountant capable of working on contracts of at least £250 per day our partners may be prepared to sponsor you under Tier 2 General where required. To discuss your situation with an experienced professional call now on 0800 294 4388 or Submit your Details and we will get right back to you!
Switch from Tier 1 Post Study Work to Tier 2 General
If you hold a Tier 1 PSW visa you need to think about switching to Tier 2 General as soon as possible. Historically many Tier 1 PSW visa holders have gone on to secure Tier 1 General visas however this option is no longer available (Tier 1 General was scrapped in 2011). The only option now is to move to a Tier 2 General visa with a UKBA licensed employer.
This process is not straightforward and only a handful of organisations will be willing to offer sponsorship therefore it is very important to address the problem as early as possible.
If you are working as a professional accountant and you are keen to move from your existing Tier 1 Post Study Work visa to Tier 2 General we may be able to help you so long as we have worked with you for a minimum of 6 months. To discuss your situation with an experienced professional call now on 0800 294 4388 or Submit your Details and we will get right back to you!
