Please note that some hospitals/locations may take some time to progress with the recruitment process but we can advise you on hospitals where we can make the process quickly.
Please let us know if you want us to help you in preparing your CV. Once you are successful in the interview, you will be offered the job and the Hospital trust will issue a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS).
Your family can come with you to the UK, if they’re classified as dependants.
A dependant is:
- Your husband, wife or partner
- Your child under the age of 18
- Your child over the age of 18, but they are currently in the UK as a dependant
Similarly, to yourself, if your NHS hospital has not ticked maintenance, then your dependents must evidence that they can be supported whilst they are in the UK.
Each dependant must have £630 available to them whether they apply with you or separately at a later date. The evidence must show that it has been in your bank account or your dependant’s bank account for at least 90 days before the application.
As all doctor and nurse jobs are on the shortage occupation list, the cost of your Tier 2 visa will be £464 for each person each year the CoS is valid for.
We will make all efforts to get all visa fees you paid in the process.
Make your application
To apply for your Tier 2 visa, you must do so online. You will need to have your fingerprints and photograph taken at a local visa and application centre (to receive your Biometric Residence Permit) as part of your application.
The UK Home Office is committed to sticking to their rules concerning UK visa process times, and only in exceptional circumstances will they take longer than the time given to respond to your application.
The Home Office states that you should get your decision within three weeks of attending your appointment at the visa application centre, where 1 week is 5 working days, if you have applied to work in the UK.
