Tier 2 UK Visas is the successor for the old UK “Work Permits Visa” arrangement. To apply under Tier 2 of the points-based system (PBS) you must:
- Have a job offer from a licensed sponsor (employer) and a valid certificate of sponsorship (CoS)
- Pass a points-based assessment.
If you are a Turkish citizen and you are already in the UK with a visa that gives you the right to work, you may have certain rights under the European Community Association Agreement with Turkey.
