Switching to a Skilled Worker Visa.

To transition to a Skilled Worker visa, you must secure a job offer from a UK employer with a valid sponsor licence. The role must match the Skilled Worker visa requirements, including aligning with your skills and meeting the minimum salary. You’ll need to prove your English proficiency and apply for the visa within three months after receiving a Certificate of Sponsorship from your employer.
