NON EU CITIZENS APPLYING FOR A UK WORK VISA

As a general note to all, the UK is very restrictive on work visas for non-EU citizens, to the extent that it has a "Shortage Occupation List" and then on top of that uses regional quotas for those who actually qualify from that list, so even if you find a job and an employer who will employ you, if the quota for the period has been used, you will not get a work visa.

In addition, Work Visas are by definition temporary and should not be regarded as a way to guarantee permanent residence anywhere in the UK.  They do give you the ability to request permanent residence, but there is no guarantee it will be granted and you may have to return to your home country at the end of your visa.


Hope this helps.

That sounds good to me.  But people will get lost into the black market.
