Overview of the UK Skilled Worker Visa
Under the UK points-based immigration system, to qualify for a Skilled Worker Visa, you must be awarded 70 points in total, 20 of which mandatory points for sponsorship, 20 mandatory points for a job at the appropriate skill level, and 10 mandatory points for showing English language ability.
The other 20 points are tradeable and may be awarded to you based on whether your proposed salary equals or exceeds certain thresholds, if you have a PhD in a subject relevant to the job or a qualification in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics subject, if your job is in a shortage occupation or in a listed health or education occupation, or whether you are a new entrant to the labour market.
You may also need to provide a valid medical certificate confirming that you have undergone screening for active pulmonary tuberculosis and that this tuberculosis is not present in you.
