UK Worker Visa’s

The Health and Care Worker Visa was a specific type of visa in the United Kingdom designed for individuals working in the health and care sector. This visa was created to address the labor shortages in the UK’s health and social care sectors and to facilitate the recruitment of skilled healthcare professionals from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.

Key features of the Health and Care Worker Visa included:

  1. Eligibility: To be eligible for this visa, applicants typically needed a confirmed job offer in the UK’s health or social care sector. This could include roles such as doctors, nurses, social workers, and various other healthcare professionals.

  2. Sponsorship: The job offer had to be from an employer that held a valid sponsor license in the UK. The employer would issue a Certificate of Sponsorship (COS) to the applicant.

  3. English Language and Maintenance Requirements: Applicants were required to meet certain English language proficiency standards and show they could support themselves financially during their stay in the UK.

  4. Length of Stay: The Health and Care Worker Visa generally allowed individuals to stay in the UK for a specific period, usually for the duration of their employment.
