» Visas for Nurses from Outside the EU
Overseas qualified nurses must be registered to work in the UK. The regulatory body is called the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
Once the appropriate registration has been achieved, most nurses would apply for UK migration via either the work permit holder or Tier 1 - General skilled visa routes.
The Work Permit would generally be the fastest option for nurses outside of the EU who already have a job offer to migrate to the UK. For further information, view the UK Visa Bureau work permit pages.

The Tier 1 - General Skilled Migration visa allows non-EU citizens without a job offer to live and work in the UK. Therefore, nurses without a job offer should use this UK immigration option. However, before applying, Tier 1 - General Skilled Migration visa hopefuls should seek further information on the other Tier 1 - General skilled visa requirements.
