Immigration to the United Kingdom (Intra-company Visas)

 

An Intra-company visa allows you to go to or stay in the UK to do an eligible job at your employer’s UK branch. There are 2 types of Intra-company visa.

Intra-company Transfer visa


Apply for this visa if you are being transferred by your employer to a role in the UK. You will need to have worked for your employer overseas for more than 12 months, unless they’re going to pay you £73,900 a year or more to work in the UK. This visa has replaced the Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer) Long-term Staff visa.

Intra-company Graduate Trainee visa
 

This visa is for transfers to the UK as part of a graduate training programme for a managerial or specialist role. You will need to have worked for your employer overseas for at least 3 months immediately before the date you apply. This visa has replaced the Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer) Graduate Trainee visa.

To qualify for an Intra-company visa, you must:

  • be an existing employee of an organisation that’s been approved by the Home Office as a sponsor
  • have a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ from your employer with information about the role you’ve been offered in the UK
  • do a job that’s on the list of eligible occupations
  • be paid at least £41,500 for an Intra-company Transfer visa or at least £23,000 for an Intra-company Graduate Trainee visa

The specific eligibility requirements depend on your job.
