Skilled workers from both inside and outside the European Union have always been a huge asset for businesses in the UK, particularly when they are filling positions on the shortage list.
If you want to enter the UK for the age short occupation list, you will need to apply for a Tier 2 general work visa.It is important to know that before applying for this visa you have to be offered a job from a UK employer. world overseas Immigration can help you apply for your Tier 2 visa once you have a job offer in place.
Why is there a Shortage Occupation List?
Only workers from the European Economic Area – which includes all EU countries, including the UK, – enjoy freedom of movement, travel and working within the region without a visa.
The current scheme for high-skilled non-EEA migrants – known as Tier 2 visas – allows 20,700 high-skilled workers in the UK each year.
The current salary range for such visas is £ 30,000, and jobs are given top priority on the “Shortage Occupation List”.
If SOL includes a job title, it means:
- There is no need for UK workers to advertise jobs
- There is no need to meet the £ 35,800 salary limit for settlement after five years
- Reduced visa application fees for workers and their families
- If skilled labor cap of 20,700 is reached, businesses are preferred over SOL
MAC recommends that there should be a “full review” of the abatement system once it becomes clear what the future immigration system is like.
The government has previously stated that after Brexit, people in the European Union should face the same immigration rules as those from elsewhere.
