The Highly Skilled Migrant Programme has been very successful since it's launch on 28th Jan 2002. This has now been replaced by the Tier 1 HSMP Visa.

The points based scheme allows you to qualify for Tier 1 based on your qualifications, past earnings, age and experience. The Tier 1 Visa was designed to encourage the entry of people to the UK to seek employment who are probably already earning a high salary and are very successful in their home country.

Any individual can apply; depending on your circumstances where you may apply from will vary. Applications made in the UK will be scored against the Tier 1 criteria but whether leave to remain is granted will also be determined by your current immigration status.

How you can qualify under the programme
To make a successful application you will need to provide evidence that you score sufficient points in the categories and demonstrate that you will be able to continue your career in the United Kingdom. Please note that you do not have to score points in all categories to qualify under the programme as long as you score at the minimum points total required.

If you think you may qualify visit the Tier 1 Visa calculator for a quick initial assessment, a free service which will ask a few basic questions for a simple way to assess your score. SkillClear will let you know if you qualify for the programme and see if you would like to apply. Easy.
