Do Immigration Solicitors in Waltham Forest Assist with UK Work Visas?
There are a large number of immigration solicitors operating in the London area. Some immigration law firms deal in only specific areas of immigration law such as family visas or short-stay visas, whereas others offer services in most, if not all aspects of immigration law.
Our Waltham Forest immigration lawyers offer expert guidance in all areas of UK immigration. Of course, this includes full assistance with UK work visas. It is crucial to bear in mind that you must have a job offer before you can apply for a UK work visa.
There are two types of UK work visas: Tier 2 visas are for those who are entering into long-term employment in the UK, whereas the Tier 5 Temporary Work Visa is for those going into short-term employment in the UK, typically for up to twelve months.
The visas within the Tier 2 Visa category are as follows:
- Tier 2 (General): This is the main Tier 2 visa for those entering into skilled professions, such as those in IT, healthcare and financial services
- Tier 2 Intra-company Transfer: For those entering into the UK branch of a multinational company
- Tier 2 Sportsperson: For professionally recognised sportspeople
- Tier 2 Minister of Religion: For those entering a position in a UK faith-based community
Tier 2 visas generally last for at least two and a half years and you can apply for Tier 2 visa extensions too.

Also, each individual application is different. In some cases, immigration officials might request additional information, which will delay the processing stage.
That being said, the Home Office says that generally immigration applications will be processed within eight weeks of the date they are received.
