What is a Skilled Worker visa UK?

A Skilled Worker visa in the UK is a visa category that allows skilled workers from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland to come to the UK to work.

To be eligible for a Skilled Worker visa, you must have a job offer from a UK employer who holds a valid sponsor licence. The job offer must meet certain requirements, including a skill level of RQF Level 3 or above, and the employer must demonstrate that they cannot fill the position with a suitably qualified or skilled worker from the UK.

The Skilled Worker visa allows you to work in the UK for the specific employer named on your visa, and you can generally stay for up to 5 years. You may be able to extend your visa or apply for settlement (also known as indefinite leave to remain) after a certain period.
