Once you've secured your visa, what about about the future?
HOW LONG CAN YOU STAY IN THE UK FOR?
The Health and Care Worker Visa is valid for a minimum of three years and a maximum of five years. Your Certificate of Sponsorship will state for how long your employer is sponsoring you.
You can apply to extend your visa as many times as you like as long as you still meet the eligibility requirements and have the same job as when you were given your permission to enter the UK.
You cannot change jobs or employers unless you update your visa. You will need to apply to update your Health and Care Worker visa if you want to change your job and your new job is with a different employer; or your job changes to a different occupation code, and you are not in a graduate training programme; or if you leave a job that is on the shortage occupation list for a job that is not included on the list.
APPLY FOR INDEFINITE LEAVE TO REMAIN (ILR)
You will be able to apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after five years in the Health and Care Worker Visa category. This visa gives you the right to live, work and study here for as long as you like and apply for benefits if you’re eligible.
Salary Threshold Cut
There is an acute shortage of people in the care sectors. So recent Government relaxation of employment regulations means that it is now more feasible for UK care sector employers to hire from a global pool. So now you can be part of solution to address the needs of an ageing population.
