If the applicant has trained outside of the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA), and has been offered a nursing job in the UK, they can apply for a tier 2 (general) visa.
They will need to supply the following evidence as part of your application:
The NHS Trust will provide sponsorship for them to live in the UK. They will give a certificate of sponsorship reference number which they can add to their visa application.
They are able to apply for a visa up to three months before the date they start their new nursing role in the UK. It can take the authorities around three weeks to reach a decision on their visa application.
The cost will depend on their particular situation. For example, it will take account of the country of origin, the length of time they plan to stay in the UK and how they are applying.
