Q&A: My work visa application for UK was approved but the work permit issued to me by my sponsor company got held?

Question by indigo: My work visa application for UK was approved but the work permit issued to me by my sponsor company got held?
With the recession affecting the UK economy, my employer decided to hold my employment though I have a UK visa now. My employer said they are going to review my employment after 6 months depending on the improvement of the business situation. Would I be required to apply for a UK visa again even if the same company is going to hire me on a later time? I am still in my country.

I think you should contact a UK immigration lawyer or other specialist.

Your work visa should be valid until the expiry date on the visa.But it is also tied to a specific employer. If the employer chooses to let you go in 6 months, THEN you must get another work visa in order to work for another company.

In Canada – If the company does let you go, you can still stay in Canada but you just cannot work because the visa is tied to the employer, but its not yet expired.

You will need to ask a UK lawyer if they have the same rule or not. In some countries you are instantly illegal if the company fires you, no matter of the work visa is still valid by the date.

  1. You will have serious problem entering UK if u enter six months after the issue of visa. You should probably ask ur employer to decide if they want u now or not, if not yet then they should send u in written form & so if they later ask u to join them they have to give u documentation for everything so u can explain it border entry point whey didn’t u enter when the visa was issued.

    Also make sure u know what ur rights are when u are in UK.
