Our Tier 2 team have extensive experience in Intra Company Transfers and work with accuracy, clarity and efficiency meaning that you as a client, can focus on your business and not on the migration of your workers. 

Contact us today via info@westkin.com or on  0207 1184 546 and book your consultation with one of our experts.

We have detailed below some ueful information to help you to understand some of the criteria and categories that relate to Intra Company transfers. Our team can guide you through every step of the process and micro manage your application today. 

Intra Company Transfers allow a Tier 2 licensed employer to transfer and recruit employees from companies that they have links to abroad.

As immigration lawyers specializing in Intra Companies, it is crucial to apply best practice to this fast changing area.

The main requirements are that the Employer must have a Tier 2 license, not just to employ Tier 2 General workers but specifically to cover Tier Intra Company Transfers.

The immigration authorities will also require that the Intra Company transfer fits within the following 4 categories:

1. Long-term staff – this is for established and skilled employees. These are employees who the immigration authorities agree are to be transferred to the UK division or branch of their company for a period greater than twelve months to fill a vacancy that cannot be filled by a UK based recruit.

2. Short-term staff – this is similar in nature to category 1 above, but as well as being for established and skilled employees to be transferred to the UK division or branch of their company, these are employees that for 12 months or less will be filling a post that cannot be filled by a new recruit from the UK.

3. Graduate trainee – our immigration lawyers are experienced in using this route, which allows the transfer of recent graduate employees to take employment at a UK branch of the same company. This will be part of a structured graduate training programme. This programme must be clearly defined and should lead to a managerial or specialist role in the future.

4. Skills transfer – this route allows the transfer of new and graduate employees to a UK division of the same company. The difference is to obtain the skills and to learn the knowledge required to perform their job overseas. Thy can also be used to train so their specialist skills and knowledge are transferred to the UK workforce.

An appropriate salary and certificate of sponsorship will also need to be obtained.

The applicant’s maintenance and English requirements will be assessed by the immigration authorities.

The amount of time obtained in the visas will depend on the 4 categories above.

Please contact our experienced immigration lawyers for further guidance.
