UK work visa: Intra-company transfers

The transfer of a senior executive from a foreign-based company to their UK office. This visa is part of the Tier 2 class of UK visas. In order to be able to apply for this visa, you must be
from outside the European Economic Area.

We take stress out of international company transfers

This visa category allows an employee of an international company to be transferred, or seconded, to its UK-based entity as a sponsored worker, allowing them to live and work in the country.

This scheme is usually only available if you wish to take up a graduate-level role within the UK branch of the company and will require a specific licence from the Home Office.

Other eligibility requirements

In order to be able to apply for this visa you will need a certificate of sponsorship and “appropriate” salary as well as at least £945 in savings.

These applications are extremely complicated and it’s highly advisable that you speak to a professional if you are looking to apply for one.
