Immigration policy in the United Kingdom is constantly under review, with Immigration rules frequently being updated. Woodcock Law has compiled this guide to assist you with the name changes from the past few months.
Have you ever wondered what happened to a UK visa category? Rather than having been removed, its name may have simply changed.
The UK Home Office has released new guidance with the publication of an official list of old and new visa names to clear up any confusion.
|Old Visa Name||New Visa Name|
|Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent)||Global Talent|
|Tier 2 (General)||Skilled Worker|
|Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer)||Intra-company routes|
|Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer) – Long-term Staff||Intra-company Transfer|
|Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer) – Graduate Trainee||Intra-company Graduate Trainee|
|Tier 2 (Minister of Religion)||T2 Minister of Religion|
|Tier 2 (Sportsperson)||T2 Sportsperson|
|Tier 4 (General)||Student|
|Tier 4 (Child)||Child Student|
|Parent of a Tier 4 (Child) Student||Parent of a Child Student|
