The Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer (Tier 2 ICT) visa is issued to applicants who are transferred to a UK Branch from another branch overseas. The company would need to hold a Tier 2 Sponsorship License.
Tier 2 ICT Work Permit visa entitles all successful applicants to:
- Live and work in the UK temporarily
In order to apply for a visa under this category, an applicant must satisfy the points requirement of 70 – this would include points allocated for:
- Maintenance, money saved to evidence you are able to support yourself and your dependents
- English Language Requirement
- A sponsor and a valid Certificate of Sponsorship will need to be provided by the sponsoring company
A visa under this category can be issued for maximum periods of 6 months, 1 year, 5 years or 9 years (depending on the sub-category). After this period, applicants may need to return to their country, as this route is not traditionally a route to permanent residence in the UK.
