As UK Recruiters, we are often asked for information on how candidates can get Work Permits / Visas for the UK. Many people wish to live and work in the UK, however, many are confused as to what the requirements are that they need to meet and more importantly, how they go about applying for a UK visa or work permit. Unfortunately, we are not qualified to answer or advise on questions like this. So instead, we have taken a review of web offerings to provide correct, professional and up-to-date information and advice. We found the following 3 sites most helpful:
The UK Border Agency website is probably one of the best places for someone to go if they wish to apply for a UK work visa. The website is very clear, and easy to use, making the application process as stress-free as possible. Information includes the criteria required for a UK work visa, how to apply and frequently asked questions. For a direct link on how to apply for a UK work visa click here
