Scale Up Visa

Scale Up Visa

The UK Home Office’s brand-new scale up visa is now live! This new visa allows worker to come to the UK to work in specific jobs if the organisation that they are working for meets certain criteria to be considered a ‘scale-up’ business.

How do I qualify?

To qualify for a Scale-up Worker visa, you must:

have a confirmed job offer to work for an approved scale-up business for at least 6 months

have a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ from your employer with information about the role you’ve been offered in the UK

have a job offer to do a job that’s on the list of eligible occupations

be paid a minimum salary in your new job

meet English language requirements

You can stay in the UK on a scale-up visa for 2 years. Once the visa expires you can re-apply as many times as you like for 3 more years (5 years total) as long as you continue to meet the requirements for the visa.

What if I am a business?

For your organisation to be qualified as a scale up business it must –

have a sponsor licence from the Home Office

have grown by 20% in each year in either employment or total sales (turnover)

have at least 10 employees
