Dotan Cohen Law Offices helps corporate clients relocate to the United Kingdom.
Our options for corporate relocation to the United Kingdom include:
- UK Visa Sponsorship for Employers – For eligible and licensed companies sponsoring employees. Companies must have appropriate systems in place to monitor sponsored employees and must prove that the company is a genuine business. Licenses include Tier 2 licenses for skilled workers with long-term job offers, and Tier 5 licenses for skilled temporary workers.
- Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer Visa – There are four types of Intra-Company Transfer Visas: Long-Term Staff, Short-Term Staff, Graduate Trainee, and Skills Transfer. The Skills Transfer visa is no longer available unless the company already had a certificate of sponsorship before November 23, 2016. The Long-Term Staff Visa is for employment that lasts longer than 12 months, the employment cannot be filled by a new UK recruit, and the employee must have worked for the overseas employer for at least 12 months. The Short-Term Staff Visa is for employment that lasts for less than 12 months, the employment cannot be filled by a new UK recruit, and the employee must have worked for the overseas employer for at least 12 months. The Graduate Trainee Visa is for graduate trainee programs for specialist roles, and the employee must have at least three months of experience with the overseas employer.
- Tier 5 Temporary Worker Visa – There are five types of Temporary Worker Visas: Creative and Sporting, Charity Worker, Religious Worker, Government Authorized Exchange, and International Agreement. Creative and Sporting Visas allow someone to work as a sportsperson for up to one year, and as an entertainer or artist for up to two years. Charity Worker Visas allow someone to work unpaid for up to one year. Religious Worker Visas allow someone to do pastoral and non-pastoral work for up to two years. Government Authorized Exchange Visas allow someone to work for up to one year, or to do research projects for up to two years. International Agreement Visas allow someone to work in a job covered by agreements between countries (e.g. employees of overseas governments).
