  • Application for UK visa is done in the country of origin, i.e., at the British Embassy in Manila, and not in the UK. Visas are issued based on the points criteria for qualifications, prospective earnings, maintenance funds and English language proficiency. Since the visas are applied at, and issued by the British Embassy in Manila, applicants should not give credence to the scanned copies of visas purportedly applied in their behalf by their employer’s agents, including immigration consultants, solicitors or travel agents;
  • The new UK Points-Based Immigration System has done away with the requirement of the old ‘work permit’ which is now replaced by the ‘certificate of sponsorship’. To be able to issue a certificate of sponsorship in favor of a candidate or applicant, the prospective UK employer should be duly licensed as a sponsor by the UK Border Agency (UKBA). Filipino jobseekers should verify the status of their prospective employers in the list of sponsors which can be found at the UKBA website: The payment for the certificate of sponsorship is also shouldered by the UK employer;
  • The Overseas Nursing Program (ONP) is currently at a standstill and the Association is not aware of any institution successfully offering the program as a route to getting a UK License to practice nursing in the UK;
  • Individuals with a UK student entry visa are only allowed to work 10-hours per week during term time if you are on a course below NQF 6/QCF 6/SCQF 9 at a UK higher education institution;
  • There will also be tighter regulations on allowing the dependents of students to join them in the UK – and less flexibility in the number of years that overseas students can spend in the UK after courses are finished; Binary Option Chart Setup Robot License Key

The association would also like to remind all jobseekers to deal only with licensed immigration consultants and/or solicitors. It is suggested that all transactions be made at the offices of licensed immigration consultants and/or solicitors and, when necessary, ask them to produce their license to practice as immigration consultants and/or solicitors before making any payment. Refrain from transacting business in clinics, cafes, telephones or mobile phones, e-mail, and other venues where it is not possible to ascertain the legitimate status of the immigration consultancy practice being offered.
