An Intra-Company Transfer Visa falls under the Tier 2 Visa category of the points-based system (PBS). You can apply for this visa if you are an employee of a multinational company and you are being transferred by your overseas employer to a UK branch. This visa can be used either for long-term or for frequent short visits.

This category can also be used by graduates to receive short-term training in the UK. This route requires specific details on the training being undertaken to ensure that it meets the requirements laid down by the Home Office.

There is also a minimum income requirement which differs for graduates and long-term staff. For long-term workers, earning about the threshold of £120,000 per year will mean your visa can be extended for even longer.

Our experienced lawyers can help you acquire your Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa. If you meet with one of our immigration lawyers, he/she will take you through each step of your application process. This includes assessing your eligibility, helping to arrange a UK Sponsor for your Tier 2 Visa, and completing a full document check.

Your lawyer will also prepare a Letter of Representation to accompany your application to outline and support your case using references to relevant case law. Contact us now on 0333 363 8577 or use our online contact form to speak with one of our immigration lawyers for more advice about your eligibility for a Tier 2 Visa.
