A Sports Visa UK is a type of Work Visa under the Tier 2 category of the points-based visa system. If you are an international sportsperson or qualified coach you may be able to work in a sporting role in the UK with a Tier 2 UK Sportsperson Visa. This visa is applicable if you are recognised by your sport’s governing body as being an elite member of your profession.
This visa is judged as part of the points-based system (PBS) and is under the Tier 2 Skilled Worker Visa category. It allows you to enter and live in the UK as a foreign national for a maximum of three years. This is provided you work within a role in which you will make an exceptional difference to your sport in the UK.
