You will need an approved sponsor to get a Tier 2 General visa. Your potential sponsor will have a process to follow before you can be issued with a COS.

HI Cancerian

you can switch into tier 2 visa any time.

no need to invest your money .

your sponsor need to issue cos depend on your job role . check Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes .

one of my friend switched tier1 ent to tier 2 .

if your above 26 years old you experienced person so your salary should be experienced salary.

like Salary rates: New entrant: £22,500 / Experienced: £31,200

before you apply visa make sure take suggestion with our gurus .

this information as per my knowledge am giving you .

Thanks.

Gud luck bro
