What is a Health and Care Worker Visa?

The Tier 2 Health and Care Visa was introduced in August 2020 and is aimed at applicants looking to work in the UK as health and care professionals. The eligible occupations listed under this Visa were initially considered under the Shortage Occupation List of the Tier 2 (General) Visa, however the Government has decided to specifically target these occupations to streamline and expedite the process given the outbreak of Covid-19. Some of the occupations listed are, but not limited to the following:

  • Medical Practitioners
  • Dental Practitioners
  • Ophthalmic Practitioners
  • Nurses
  • Midwives
  • Biological Scientists

The UK’s immigration law can be complex and difficult to navigate. You will also have been set a start date for you to start work in the UK. Why not allow Cranbrook Legal to ensure a successful visa application, especially where you cannot risk your application being refused by the Home Office.
