Do you propose to obtain a tier 2 General visa?
Thanks for your question. I will try to help.
Sorry, I just have to check that it was a general tier 2 visa you hope to apply for.
Unfortunately, you cannot switch from a tier 5 government exchange to tier 2 from within the county. You will see from the following link that such visa is not listed in the eligible categories and as such the application would be rejected:
Tier 5 is a temporary visa category and unfortunately it does not give a right to apply for ILR and as you would have to leave the UK in order to apply for a tier 2 visa then not time spent on your tier 5 visa will count towards ILR. However, if you obtain a tier 2 visa then this obviously attracts ILR after 5 years residence so it’s not that long in the grand scheme of things.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back. Please remember to leave positive feedback using the stars at the top of the page.
