There is Johnson who is the father Dorcas is the mother and they have 3 children,,,Naomi is the eldest and 2 young boys....they are seeking to come into the uk to find work and give their children a better future...He is an artist who paints and sculptures she is a full time mother....i know them through johnsons art work which is quite magnificent and have purchased quite a few...i'm sure he would do very well here selling to a british public....

Thanks for your reply.

If netiher the mother or the father have any British Ancestry and they wish to come here then the only way I can see that they would be able for one or both of the mother and father to apply for a Tier 2 Sponsored Skilled Workers Visa.

Unless either of their chose professions is on the following list they will have to secure a job with an employer who is a (or will apply to become) a licensed sponsor of skilled workers and the employer would then out a the Resident Labour Market Test :-

The RLM test is effectively to show that their are no resident/eea national in the locality that can perform your role, though this might be difficult if there are other accounts officers who could do the role.

If they are willing to sponsor then you will also have to meet the requisite number of points under the Tier 2 points based system:-

If they cannot get a job offer from a sponsor as well as meeting the relevant points criteria then I cannot see how else they could secure leave to remain in the UK I’m afraid.

Sorry it could not be better news.
