Hi, my sister works in as a manager in a bank in Nigeria and she would like to come into the uk to work. she has been to visit a couple of times but now she wants to work for a bit. I would like to know if she could come in under any of the new tier systems in place and what requirements she would need to satisfy.



I'm afraid Tier 1 applications to come and work without a sponsored employer are closed until further notice to applicants from outside the UK.


Tier 2 applications are still available. In order to apply she must have a job offer from an employed licensed to sponsor tier 2 workers. This means she will have to find an employer in the area where she is to work who is licensed by the UKBA and attain the requisite amount of points for this application.


All the information she needs is contained on the following site:-
