Welcome

Welcome to UKPermits. This website provides information about immigration into the UK for Employers, Business, Family and tourist visitors. You will find details of the different immigration categories and the visa requirements for foreign nationals.

If you are not a British Citizen or a citizen of one the European Economic Area (EEA) countries, you may need an entry clearance before you travel to the UK. People from certain countries, known as visa nationals, need an entry clearance to enter the UK for any reason; those from other countries need one only for some reasons: for example, to live as the wife or husband of a British Citizen. Entry clearance is the formal term to describe the application process for visa nationals who wish to travel to the United Kingdom and for non visa nationals who intend a longer stay or to settle in the UK.

Employers will find information on their responsibilities to not employ people illegally and details on the tier 2 sponsorship tier, part of the managed migration 5 tier immigration structure.

Individuals will find help on how we can assist them in making entry clearance ( from overseas ) or further leave to remain ( from within the UK) applications and how we can assist with urgent applications in the UK.
