Tier 5 ( government exchange temporary workers visa) to Tier 2 switch

Post by Jaysudi » Fri Apr 24, 2020 3:30 pm

Hi, I am Dr. Sudeep, I started work in UK in September on Tier 5 visa which was valid till Aug 15 2020 and now I have got a new job which is offering me a Tier 2 Visa. But since the lockdown in India I am unable to go to India to apply for a Tier 2 Visa. Is it possible to apply for Tier 2 while staying in UK? Or has someone Managed to get their work Visa switched to Tier 2 while remaining in UK?

Speak to the HR at your Tier 2 sponsor and see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus ... -residents > If you're applying to stay in the UK long-term

That guidance also has details of the government's Coronavirus Immigration Help Centre.
I do not give immigration advice. I refer you to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor.
