Tier 1 General Highly Skilled Migrant Visa
The Tier 1 General Highly Skilled Migrant Visa category is currently closely. We remain hopeful that this popular visa category will re-open in 2021 and we will update this page if this happens.
The Tier 1 General Visa allowed highly skilled migrants to come to the UK and work without needing to first find a UK employer to sponsor them. Successful applicants could work for any employer, establish their own business or work as a contractor.
Any migrants who already held Tier 1 General visas should have already qualified for Indefinite Leave to Remain, either based on 5 years working in the UK or 10 years Long Residence.
Points were awarded for age, education and the income previously earned.
If there are any updates regarding the Tier 1 General visa we will update this page and announce such changes on our news page.
