» Intra-Company Transfer Category
Despite reports to the contrary, the UK Government has confirmed that, as of 6, April, 2012, there will be no limits imposed on the Intra-Company Transfer (ICT) within the next two years.
The Intra-Company Transfer category is for people employed by multi-national companies who are being transferred to the UK to fill a skilled position at a UK branch or related organisation. The Intra-Company Transfer category is part of the Tier 2 work permit system, and replaces the old Intra-Company Transferee work permit.
To qualify for a Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer permit, the following requirements must be met:
Successful applicants under the Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer category must pass the Tier 2 points test and will be issued a certificate of sponsorship by their employer. Once this certificate is received, the applicant can apply for entry clearance to the UK from their home country.
Entry clearance is not guaranteed, even if a certificate of sponsorship has been issued. All entry clearance applications for the UK are subject to health and security clearance.
