|UK is facing shortages of qualified and
experienced manpower in some sectors and therefore Home Office has
designed various types Work Permits under which the UK Employers can
sponsor a Work Permit for non-EEA national.
The main Work Permit categories of the UK are listed below:
Business and Commercial Work Permits
The business and commercial arrangements allow employers in the
UK to recruit people from outside the EEA who are going to be filling
a vacancy that may otherwise be filled by a 'resident worker'.
Training and Work Experience (TWES) Work Permits
The training and work experience arrangements enable people from
outside the EEA to undertake work-based training for a professional
or specialist qualification, or a period of work experience.
Sportspeople and Entertainers Work Permits
The sportspeople and entertainers arrangements allow employers
in this country to employ established sportspeople, entertainers,
cultural artists and some technical/support people from outside
Work Permits for Internships
The internship arrangements allow students from outside the EEA
studying first or higher degree courses overseas to undertake an
internship with an employer in this country.
UK Work Permits under GATS
The GATS arrangements allow employees of companies that are based
outside the European Union to work in the UK on a service contract
awarded to their employer by a UK-based organisation. This is a
special arrangement within the normal work permit rules made under
the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS). The company abroad
that is contracted to provide the service needs to apply for the
UK Work Permit.
The above work permits need the Employer Sponsorship and the Work
Permit Holder is allowed to work with only one Employer.
