Tier-2 general Change of Employment

Post by Sosi » Sat Dec 08, 2018 10:19 pm

Hi all
I would like to change of employment . I'm on tier2 now. Is there any other route to change the employer without Labour market test?
In case new employment application reject then would current visa be valued ?
Thanks in advance

No. Only a Shortage Occupation Skill is exempt form the RLMT. What is your SOC?? Have you got a new HO approved sponsor??

There would be no change to your current visa if a new visa is refused, provided you are still employed by your current sponsor.

It is not up to you to decide if a job is shortage occupation or not. Only a sponsor can make that decision if the job meets all the requirements.

See the list of shortage occupation job SOCs in the link below to research yourself.
