Want to ask me questions on how to get a visa?
Good news is, I’ve shared everything I know on how to get a visa in this video.
In the video, I share 5 steps to finding a job that sponsors a visa and also how to get hired for the position.
In the video I also recommend a few resources.
Please see them below:
RESOURCE 1: How to find out what type of visas are available and what the requirements are:
- This article shares all the visa types available. Click here to read it.
- This second article goes into detail on how to get a work visa and the requirements you’d need to meet. Click here to read it.
- If you have any questions on the different types of visas and want support figuring out which one is best for you, please consult with an immigration lawyer. My list of lawyers is further below in this post.
RESOURCE 2: Confirm whether the type of job you want to do qualifies for a visa
- Here is the governments list of occupations which are eligible and not eligible for sponsorship. Click here to read it.
- In this list, look at Tables 1 and 2 so you have an idea as to the roles that the Home Office accept sponsorship for and an idea of the salary expectations.
- And Tables 4, 5 and 6 show you specifically which roles are not eligible for sponsorship.
- Make sure you know with 100% certainty whether the type of job you want to apply for is on the eligible list.
- If you can’t find your job on the list or are unsure, please consult with an immigration lawyer for personalised advice. My list of lawyers is further below in this post.
RESOURCE 3: Check if the company you want to apply to sponsors employees
- Before you apply for a job or reach out to a company asking if they have any positions available, check if they are licensed to provide sponsorship for your visa.
- Here is the Register of Licensed Sponsors. Click here to see it.

If you have any questions about visas, please DO NOT message me with your question. I’m NOT an immigration lawyer.
Instead, I strongly recommend you consult with an immigration law firm. They will give you the most correct and up to date information on migrating to the UK and the visa requirements you’ll need to meet.
To help you connect with a law firm, I’ve researched and contacted 3 law firms to ask if they could help you.
They said they off a free initial consultation and are happy to answer your questions and explore if they can help you get a visa.
