When can I switch from a Tier 4 (Student) visa to a Tier 2 (Skilled Worker)
I am on a tier 4 visa as a dependant of a student, can I switch to tier 2 visa before the expiration of my tier 4 visa?
Thank you for your enquiry.
You should ensure your application is submitted to switch to a Skilled Worker Visa prior to the expiry of your current leave otherwise there may be overstaying factors that may affect your application. Your current visa status will endure until a decision has been reached on your Skilled Worker application even if this is after the expiry. For more information, please call 02039599123 or click here
