I need to apply for a Tier 2 (Skilled Worker) visa in June.

Customer Question

I need to apply for a Tier 2 (Skilled Worker) visa in June. I currently have a Tier 4 visa and have a certificate of sponsorship but am a bit concerned about proof of maintenance. The guidance states that I had to have £900 for maintenance in my bank account for a period of 90 days. However, last month I transferred all my funds from my savings account into my current account such that neither my current nor savings account have had £900 in them for a consecutive 90-day period. However, if considered together I have held over £5000 in my accounts (which are in the same bank) for the past 3 months. Roughly my accounts look like this: March-April Current Account: Approx. £1000 Savings Account: Appox. £5000 April-May (At the beginning) Current Account: Approx. £300 Savings Account: Approx. £5000 (At the end) Current Account: Approx. £5300 Savings Account: £0 May-June (statement not out yet but balance in current account will be above £900 and balance in savings account will be approx. £12000) Will this cause any problems when I apply for my Tier 2 visa?

It should not cause problems provided you submit all your bank statements together.

all the best
