Am I eligible for an UK Tier 2 Intra-company Transfer Visa?
The UK Tier 2 Intra-company transfer is a points-based system, where you need to be able to reach the pass mark of 50 points for the following attributes:
- Certificate of sponsorship (30 points) – To score points for sponsorship, you must have an offer of employment and a valid certificate of sponsorship form a licensed sponsor. Your certificate of sponsorship needs to indicate that the occupation is at NQF level 6. This does not require you to be educated to this level, but your job must be at this level to qualify.
- Appropriate salary (20 points) – To score points for this component your proposed annual salary needs to be relevant to the local salary rate for the nominated occupation. In attrition to that your annual salary needs to be at least GBP 40,000 if you are applying under the Long-term staff stream and at least GBP 24,000 for the other 3 streams (Short-term staff, Graduate trainee, Skills transfer). The annual salary taken into account is inclusive of any additional benefits like allowances and bonuses.
