Conditions attached to your Skilled Worker visa

If your application is successful, you will be granted a Skilled Worker visa with a number of conditions attached to it.

First of all, you will have no access to public funds. This means that you will not be eligible to claim benefits.

You will be permitted to take supplementary (paid) employment providing you continue to work in the job for which you are being sponsored.

You will also be permitted to undertake voluntary (unpaid) work.

If you apply from within the UK for a Skilled Worker visa and, on the date of the application, you are lawfully employed in a different job than the one you are being sponsored for, you are allowed to continue to work in that job for a limited period of time (usually, a few weeks), if you must give your former employer a notice of termination under your existing employment contract and if you must remain in the job during the notice period.

Another condition attached to your Skilled Worker visa is that you can study.

You may also be required to register with the police.
