The following changes to the Tier 2 visa application process will take place on 12 November 2015.
Tier 2 – Premium Service Centre (PSC) customers
· The Tier 2 paper application form, for PSC use only, will be removed from www.gov.uk, along with the standalone appointment booking function; and
· Tier 2 premium customers can now submit applications and book PSC appointments online, at www.gov.uk.
PSC appointments are readily available at present, so customers and their legal representatives should not be significantly impacted by the changes to the way appointments are booked.
Customers wishing to reschedule standalone appointments booked prior to 12 November should continue to do so via their UKVI Apply Online account.
Tier 2 - Dependents
· Tier 2 will be removed from the Points Based System (PBS) dependent paper form. This means that all Tier 2 dependant applications made from 12 November will be made via the online application process at www.gov.uk
The PBS dependant paper form will remain on www.gov.uk, for use by Tier 1 and Tier 5 dependents.
Sponsors are encouraged to direct Tier 2 customers (and any legal representatives) to use the new online service, as soon as possible, as it is a simpler and more user-friendly application process.
If you are a Premium Sponsor you can also contact your designated Account Manager for further information about any of the above changes.
