Hey there,

I don't fully understand your question, could you please explain a bit more.

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

Such visas are normally the Tier 5 Temporary Worker - International Agreement visas and are generally restricted to Government employees working for people like Diplomats abroad; for example, you're an Indian national, you would need to get a job with the Indian Diplomatic service and they sponsor your visa.

If an Indian family living in Britain, can't they hire a housemaid from India. If yes, then Do they sell this type of visa in return of money to someone who is willing to come to Britain?

Thank u Cynic..It means even a British family can't hire a maid from abroad. Is that right?

It comes down to the work visa; the UK has really tightened up on these; if you don't work in one of the shortage professions, you won't get a visa.  The only "maids" getting in at the moment are those who hold EU passports.

Isha, I have sent you a message.
