November changes to the Tier 2 Application process

Update: for the latest information on Tier 2 applications, read more here.

In November 2015, the U.K government will introduce changes to the application process for the Tier 2 visa application process with these changes coming into effect from the 12/11/2015. The reason for these changes is because the government are seeking to move away from physical application forms and will streamline the process by going digital. The new user friendly system is seen as easy to use and more straight forward than the previous process that it is replacing. See below the outline of changes:

Tier 2 Premium Service Customers (PSC)

  • The Tier 2 application form for PSC use only will be removed from www.gov.uk as well as the appointment booking function.
  • Following on from these functions being removed PSC customers will be able to submit applications and book appointments at www.gov.uk

Those who wish to reschedule their appointment, if it has been booked before the 12th of November, should continue to use their UKVI Apply Online account to do so.

Tier 2 Dependents 

Tier 2 will be removed from the Points Based System (PBS) dependent paper form. All Tier 2 dependent applications, from the 12th of November, will have to be done online at www.gov.uk

However, the PBS dependent form will continue to be on www.gov.uk for use by Tier 1 and Tier 5 applicants.
