Easier Tier 2 Visa as salary rate requirements going down – Apply Now!
Many employers and prospective employees have had to wait many months for a tier 2 visa to employ people who have to apply from outside the UK. Fortunately, since the law changed on 6 July 2018, with doctors and nurses no longer included in the cap, the salary requirements for a restricted CoS have gone down considerably from £60,000 in many cases in June to £41,000 in July. We think it will go down much further from August 2018 onwards.
E2 Visa may be only option in many cases for US
The visa options for the US are very limited. The H1B visa cap for specialty graduate level positions is being reached within a few days near the beginning of April each year, to start work in October in the same year. From 6 June 2018 in the vast majority of cases applications for H2B visas for skilled or unskilled work are no longer being accepted. Therefore in many cases the only options may be the E2 visa or L1 visa. There is no quota for these visa categories. Some people are applying for E2 visas based on investment in the US.
L1 Visa and Green Cards
The L1 visa may be a good option in many cases. Like the E2 visa there is no quota. Any nationality can apply so Chinese and Indian nationals can apply as well. You need to have worked for the same business outside the US for one year in the last three years. For overseas managers, executives and business owners may be a cost effective route to a US green card.
Irish Employment Permit Applications
The Employment Permit scheme may be worth considering if you have a job in Ireland; perhaps apply under the critical skills employment permit or general employment permit. This is more straightforward than the UK tier 2 sponsor licence and tier 2 visa scheme.
