The period which your Skilled Worker visa is granted for
If your application is successful, you will be granted entry clearance (if you applied from outside the UK) or permission to stay (if you applied from within the UK) as a Skilled Worker until 14 days after the end date of your certificate of sponsorship.
The end date of your certificate of sponsorship may be up to a maximum of 5 years after the start date of your certificate of sponsorship.
You will be given either a digital status (in which case you will be able to check and prove your status online) or a biometric resident permit, in which case you will have to collect your biometric resident permit within 30 days of your arrival in the UK (temporarily extended to 90 days due to the coronavirus situation).
