Point Based Visas

This page caters South Africans looking to work (or study and live) in the UK. More specifically, this page caters for South Africans that do not have UK birth ties and are not in a married like relationship with an EU passport holder (legally recognized relationship that is).

In the above described cases, South Africans (hereafter referred to as “applicant”) have to qualify for the UK’s point based visa system.

The British government have point together 5 main categories of their point system, specifically:

Point Based Visa System

In this category, the British governments preference has evolved. They started out looking for Highly Skilled Migrants (those with degrees and high salaries).

Since the 2009 financial recession, the British government now wants to attract foreign capital. So they have identified 3 types of “highly valued migrants”.

1. Entrepreneurs with cash savings of £200 000 (Two Hundred Thousand Pounds).

2. Investors with cash savings of £2 000 000 (Two Million Pounds).

3. Exceptionally Talented Individuals (Industry Leaders)

This category replaced the old work permit system. Gone are the days where a signed employment contract is all that a South African needed in order to get permission to work in the UK.

This category has yet to be opened. It was going to facilitate fruit pickers and seasonal farm workers. Since the point based system was implemented (in 2008), there has been no need or urgency to open this category and therefore we predict that it will not be opening any time soon.

Product description speaks for itself. It still falls under a point based system though.

This category of visas is actually two part.

The first part relates to the Youth Mobility Scheme. This category of visa replaced the previous 2 year Working Holiday Maker.

The second part of the Tier 5 visas relates to temporary work visas. Provision is made for charity workers, religious workers, creative and sporting workers as well as government authorized exchanges.
