Tier Scheme

The UK operates a points-based tier visa system for migrants from outside the European Economic Area to come to the UK to work, study, invest or train.

The system separates applicants into 5 tiers, and the applicant must pass a points based assessment. The minimum number of points required varies for each tier. With work visa applications, points are generally awarded according to the applicant’s ability, experience and age.

We ensure before you embark on this process, that you will reach the minimum threshold for a successful application.
