We also offer legal expertise on the 5 tier visa system. The United Kingdom's points-based 5 tier visa system is the main immigration route for migrants from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to come to the UK to work, study, invest or train. Applicants using the tier system must score above a minimum threshold in order for the application to be successful.

The five tier visa system consists of the following:

Tier 1: This visa category is for 'high-value migrants' from outside the EEA and covers entry of entrepreneurs, investors, and those very few people who come under the 'exceptional talent' visa.

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. This category consists of workers such as those in the creative and sporting industry, charity, religious workers and the youth mobility scheme.
