New Support Information from NHSe - Tier 2 Visa Applications
NHS England has produced guidance and a supporting presentation on the process for submitting tier 2 visa applications for GP's wishing to work in this country from overseas.
Tier 2 is an employer-led visa category which means that employers must be registered with the Home Office in order to sponsor any skilled workers they wish to recruit from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.
Non-EEA GP trainees in the UK must have a Tier 2 visa in order to study here. During the duration of their studies they are sponsored by Health Education England. Information is available here
