Work Permit Sponsor

Post by gsuraj » Thu Jan 02, 2014 3:05 pm

Hi, Am a student in UK now with a student visa. Am looking at staying in Uk for work after my course and looked at some option. I was offered an option to get a work sponsor visa from an employer even though i dont work for them. The company says they can give me work permit visa which will allow me to live and work for any other employer in the UK which would cost £5500 for the visa.

I would like to know if this is valid and if for real there is an option to do so?

Who is this? I haven't heard of that sort of Tier 2 sponsorship before.

are you sure its a scam ?? because i think you can have a sub contractor relationship. I am thinking of running a accountancy firm where any company will pay 20300 as basic.

gsuraj: Make sure to know the proper details when you are switching to Tier2. Still did not understand money thing(£5500), remember basic funda when someone is giving you a job/Tier2visa, why do you end up keeping money from your pocket to the one who is offering a position in their company ?
