Hi,Thanks for your question. If I have provided you with an answer, kindly click ACCEPT.
Based on the very limited information you have provided above, it seems that your sister will need to apply for a Tier 2 (General) Visa at the UK Embassy in Moscow.
Further details of the type of visa can be found at the following link:
Can you provide further details of the Internship?
Based on the information you have provided above, the only type of Visa that your sister can apply for is a Tier 2 general.
If she is working in the UK, she will need to be sponsored by an employer whom has a UKBA Sponsors Licence.
If they do not have this, they will not be able to Sponsor her.
The only alternative category of Visa she can apply for is a Student Visa, however, this will not allow her to undertake any work whilst she is in the UK.
The UKBA recently removes some categories of Visa and as a result, it has now become more difficult to travel to the UK unless you are granted a Visa in a specific category.
I have also sought a second opinion from a colleague who has suggested that the only category of Visa, based on the information you have provided above, would be a Tier 2 General.
What does what mean?
A Certificate of Sponsorship is a document provided by the employer stating that they will Sponsor her. The document is in an approved form.
Its a pleasure.
