Skilled Worker Route (replacing Tier 2 General Visa)
The Skilled Worker route will bring European Economic Area (EEA) nationals who want to work in the U.K. within the global points-based immigration system (PBS). This will require businesses, charities and voluntary bodies to adopt new processes for recruiting EEA nationals.
- Applicants must be sponsored by an employer licensed by the Home Office, and will need to be awarded 70 points in total under the PBS.
- Applicants must be sponsored to do a specific job.
