Tier 2: You can apply for a Tier 2 visa if you’ve been offered a skilled job in the UK and you are from outside the EEA. Tier 3: This visa is currently suspended. It was originally used for low skilled workers during temporary labour shortages, Tier 4: This is a student visa which you may apply for if you wish to study in the UK and you are at least 16. The applicant must have been offered a place on a course, must understand and read English and also have enough money to support themselves whilst in the UK. Tier 5: You can apply for a Tier 5 Visa if you wish to come to the UK for a short time for work experience, training or research through an approved government authroised exchange scheme and you have a sponsor.
