The Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer visa route is for multinational companies based overseas that wish to transfer existing staff from a country outside the EEA to the UK. There is a minimum salary requirement but, under this sub category, a Resident Market Labour Test is not required.
The important criteria applicants need to meet are:
- Have worked for an overseas parent company for a minimum of 12 months which has a UK branch that holds a UKBA Sponsor Licence;
- Score sufficient points for their 'attributes';
- Have been issued a certificate of sponsorship by the UK branch who wants to transfer the employee from the overseas company;
- Have been paid at least the minimum salary for your type of visa or the appropriate rate for the job you're offered - whichever is higher:
The minimum salary is:
£41,500 for Long-term Staff
£23,000 for Graduate Trainee
Companies can select one of four sub categories under which to transfer their employee in accordance with the company's goals. Please contact us for more detailed information.
