A Tier 2 General Visa is for an employee who may not have any connection with a UK company but who has been recruited to fill a position. A Tier 2 ICT Visa is for an employee already employed overseas by a company with a UK office who wishes to transfer them to the UK.

Home Office policies change from time to time. These are not always clearly notified and can lead to a disruption in your Tier 2 UK Visa being granted, or it may get refused. YDVISAS’ highly qualified lawyers will ensure they understand your requirements in detail and assist you at every stage, from initial consultation until visa delivery, with expert up-to-date advice.

There are two broad types of Tier 2 Visa:

Tier 2 General Visa

A Tier 2 General Visa allows you to work in the UK and undertake part-time study. You can also bring your dependants to the UK.
