Intra Company Transfer Visa Application

An Intra-Company Transfer Visa application is a type of Tier 2 Visa application. 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 above the threshold of £120,000 per year will mean your visa can be extended for even longer.
