Skilled workers from different countries can now apply to immigrate to the UK through the new UK skilled worker program.
The new program, which is based on a pointing system, gives opportunity to those who are interested to enter, live and work in the UK; as this program came as an alternative to the "Tier 2” work visa.
The new program is based on collecting points for those who qualify, as the applicant must collect at least 70 points, and these points are collected through two steps:
to collect at least 50 points in the main requirements, which are:
- Have a job offer from a UK licensed employer to attract workers from outside the UK (20 points)
- The applicant obtains a job offer that requires a certain skill level and a salary of at least 20,480 pounds. (20 points)
- Intermediate English level in reading, writing and speaking (10 points)
As for the second step, it is through obtaining at least 20 points, and that is through:
- Having a job offer with a salary of at least 25,600 pounds, or the applicant has a PhD in certain fields such as information technology, engineering and chemistry or working in jobs that suffer from a shortage in the UK labor market, or the additional points can be obtained if the applicant holds a Doctorate degree in his field of work with a salary of no less than 23,040 pounds.
There are other requirements for this program such as having a personal savings, clean criminal record in addition to a tuberculosis test (this applies to applicants from certain countries).
