UK Visa Support Services
Do you need support regarding your work status and right to work in the UK?
If you are an employee or prospective employee of BITE we will give you as much help as we can. The help we can offer will vary according to personal circumstances. Note that we are not a Visa Services company and can only offer you general advice about Visa types and the UK contracting market.
a) Tier 5 ( Youth Mobility visa )
Work longer in the UK via BITE using our visa support services!
The new visa regulations allow holders to do two years work. However prospective employers have become very wary of employing Tier 5 holders where they have less than six months left on the visa. At BITE we help overcome this objection by:
- Explaining the regulations to prospective employers and clients
- Logging days worked in a contract log effectively ensuring contractors work legally.
- Indemnifying employers and reassuring them that they are protected from any inadvertent breach of the visa regulations.
- Explaining how the Tier 5 (two year holiday working) visa holders with the right skills may extend their stay in the UK legally.
b) Tier 1 (Highly Skilled Migrant Visa)
Although limited by the UK Government at the moment. For certain highly skilled candidates (always now graduates with rare commercial skills) BITE may assist in facilitating this visa via a job offer of employment either through our network of clients or within our sister company subject to a successful job visa application. Such applications may be fast tracked enabling quick turnaround times. Previously known as HSMP or HSMV.
c) Tier 2 (Work permits)
For candidates with the right skills needed in the UK and in relatively short supply BITE may help facilitate the sourcing of a sponsoring company who are willing to offer the right candidate a job. Catergory A rated Sponsors offer opportunities to work as permanent consultants in the IT Industry.
d) Leave to remain or pre-entry clearance
For candidate/contractors working or agreeing to use BITE’S services we will source assistance in the professional completion of this application and help avoid mistakes when applying for entry or the right to remain in the UK.
e) Post Study Work Visa
Some ex- UK students (ex- student visa holders) currently working on a post study work visa in the UK can be helped to transition their visa into a Tier 2 or a Tier 1 visa provided they have the right skills and a flexible approach to their work.
N.B. Please note BITE is not a visa agency nor does it make a financial gain through assistance on the provision of visas nor is it a registered UK Government OISC agency. Support is provided to existing or prospective employees and their families and friends. Any other persons should seek professional advice from a solicitor or a registered OISC visa agency.
