We are specialist immigration solicitors within Croydon and Central London and have a strong reputation in assisting Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer migrants to regularise their stay. We offer competitive pricing and offer a bespoke immigration service to all our clients.
Companies and organisations intending to move staff to the UK temporarily, will find this Immigration category very useful. The Tier 2 Intra – Company Transfer Immigration category commonly referred to as Tier 2 ICT enables organisations and businesses transfer employees from their organisations abroad to a UK associated company, subsidiary or branch.
Employees can be transferred to the UK under two categories including Long Term Staff and Graduate Trainee staff. The generality of long-term staff can be employed in the UK for up to 5 years but employees who meet the much higher salary threshold may be able to extend their leave for up to 9 years.
Graduate Trainees on the hand can only be employed in the Tier 2 ICT category for a maximum period of 12 months.
Long Term staff and Graduate Trainees whose companies intend to transfer them to the UK must have worked for employers for a minimum length of time. Long Term staff should have been employed abroad by their employer for a period of at least 12 months and Graduate Trainees should have been employed for at least 3 months.
Employees on the Overseas Representative Visa can also switch into the Tier 2 ICT category within the UK.
The Tier 2 ICT category allows migrants applying for this visa bring their partners and dependant children.
We are happy to arrange face-to-face, telephone or virtual meetings at a date and time convenient to you and in most cases can offer same-day meeting services.
