There have been some significant changes to HSMP scheme for the in-country
HSMP Applications as well as HSMP Extension Applications and we though
it would be best if we send a separate announcement email for this
so that you can save it for your future reference also.
HSMP changes To whom do they apply?:
While there are no changes to the HSMP scheme or points calculations,
application procedure for the applicants applying from outside the
UK, there are some major changes for the following type of applications:
What are the changes?:
- First time HSMP application made by any person who is already
in the UK on Work Permit or Student Visa or such other visa which
grants him / her the Resident Status and who wants to apply under
HSMP to change the status to HSMP
- Applications for extension of HSMP visa by those who are already
in the UK under HSMP visa.
From where to get the FLR(IED) form?:
- There is a new form FLR(IED) which is to be submitted along
with the first time HSMP Application or HSMP Extension Application.
- There is a separate fee of £335-00 for the FLR(IED) form.
- Form FLR(IED) needs to be submitted to a separate address.
You can download the FLR(IED) form from IND web site or if you are
member of HSMP Community, you will be able to download the same from
the member area.
How to submit the HSMP application and FLR(IED)?
If you are applying under HSMP for the first time, from within the
UK, please note the following importantly:
You must submit directly to the HSMP Team at Doncaster, the following:
In addition you should send separately to Work Permits (UK) at Cannock,
- A fully completed Highly Skilled Migrant Programme application
- The correct payment - £315-00
You should also supply any original documentation required by the
FLR (IED) or HSMP application form to support statements made on them.
- A fully completed FLR(IED) form. You should not submit this
form until you have submitted a fully completed Highly Skilled
Migrant Application form to the HSMP Team in Doncaster, UK
- Two passport sized photographs
- Your passport and those of any dependants accompanying you
- The correct payment - £335-00.
If you are already in the UK under HSMP and need to apply for the
extension, in the last month before the end of HSMP visa you will
be able to apply for further permission to stay as a Highly Skilled
Migrant. You should apply directly to Work Permits (UK) in Cannock,
using the form FLR (IED) along with the documents as mentioned above
and submit the same to Work Permits (UK) at Cannock.
A final decision cannot be made until all forms and documents have
been received by the HSMP Team. You should not submit the FLR (IED)
before you have fully completed and submitted the Highly Skilled Migrant
application form. If you choose to submit both the HSMP application
form and the FLR (IED) form together, you will not receive a refund
if either part of the application is rejected.
Where to submit FLR(IED)?:
You should send the fully completed HSMP application form and accompanying
documentation to the HSMP team at:
Home Office IND
Doncaster DN4 5HZ
You should send the fully completed FLR (IED) form and accompanying
documentation to Work Permits (UK) at:
Work Permits (UK) FLR(IED)
Cannock WS11 0WS

|What HSMP Members say...
How I wish such a site was available when I applied for HSMP and came to UK under HSMP! Till before two days of our departure for the UK, we were not sure about where we will go when we land and if there would be any one to receive us at the airport. It was really a time of a lot of stress for us. Fortunately for us some friends of friends helped us, but I am sure not all of us are so lucky and HSMP Services will be able to help those who need such support.
