Intra-Company Transfer Visa

This visa allows International Companies to relocate their employees from their overseas operations to a UK subdivision for training purposes or to fill a particular vacancy that cannot be filled by a settled person.

There are currently 2 sub-categories for Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer Visa:

  1.     The Graduate Trainee Category

This category is for fresh international graduates’ employees who are to be relocated as part of a systematic graduate program, that specifically outlines progression in the direction of a managerial or specialist position.

It is required that the candidates are recent graduates with at least 3 months’ preparation in a foreign division of the transnational.

  1.   The Long Term Staff category

This category is for skilled workers who are to be relocated for a period between 12 months and 5 years with the purpose of filling a position that cannot be filled regionally. It is required that the candidate must have been employed at the foreign division of the multinational for at least twelve months, unless they’re going to pay you £73,900 or more a year to work in the UK.

What Our Clients Say

I would like to thank Master Legal Services for the job they have done to get my 5 years UK Residence Card as a family member of a EU national. I recommend this immigration firm as they have provided me with a tailored service, by speaking my native language (Russian) and charging less than other law firms in London.

Vitalia Ion

I have asked the Master Legal Services for help with my Family Leave to Remain application. Elena was very professional and knowledgeable in explaining the process and what was required for this application. She made me feel assured that all the information submitted was correct and I would get my FLR without any problem (and I did). I highly recommend using this company as they are professional and efficient.

Kelly A – 47

I have instructed them to handle my very complex case regarding EEA Permanent Residence Card. They handled my immigration case in a very professional manner. They have been staying in constant contact, responding promptly to my queries. I have been granted Permanent Residence Card. Now I will instruct them to assist with my application for a British citizenship. It is very difficult to find a good law firm that charges a reasonable fee. I would highly recommend Master Legal Services.
