Work Permit Application/ How to Apply

Applying for work permit is automatically on you, I mean you must meet up the work requirements to be able to Apply and be Accepted.

Below I will put you through how it all work so keep reading.

How many types of work permits are there?

There are seven main types of work permits: Hot Work Permits, Cold Work Permits, Height Work Permits, Confined Spaces Work Permits, Excavation Permits, and Chemical Work Permits.

Work Access Permit For Individual

The Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA) informs the public that Work Access Permits (WAPs) for self-employed individuals are NOT delivered by the MRA. The Mauritius Police Force is the Institution responsible for the issue of WAPs.

Capacity meaning in Work Access Permit

The capacity of a WAP is the number of users that it can support without a degradation of performance. These can vary from 10 or 15 for an old Apple Airport, for example, to 500 on one of the new high capacity WAPs on the market.

How to Get a Work Permit in UK

Before you can apply you must satisfy the following work permit requirements:

Have received a confirmed offer of employment from a licensed UK employer who will act as your sponsor; and


Be in possession of a Certificate of Sponsorship issued by your sponsoring employer; and

Pass the points-based assessment, details of which can be found on the category specific work permit pages listed below.

There are three main categories of UK work permit we advise on. These are:

Tier 2 General – Skilled Worker

Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer

Tier 2 Sportsperson Visa

The work permit application process is led by the employer who is responsible for issuing you (the applicant) with a Certificate of Sponsorship.

Employers who want to know more about Tier 2 work permits are advised to read our section on Tier 2 visa information for employers.

UK Work Permits (General Category) & Permanent Residency

As a UK work permit holder you can qualify for permanent residence if you have lived and worked in the UK for a minimum of five years. Once you have satisfied the five year requirement you may qualify for Indefinite Leave to remain in the UK, which can be then be followed by British Naturalisation as a UK citizen.

Intra-Company Transfers & Permanent Residency

As a UK work permit holder under the ICT category, you can qualify for permanent residence if you have lived and worked in the UK for a minimum of five years and was granted a Tier 2 intra company transfer visa under the rules in place before 6th April 2010 or had previous leave as a qualifying work permit holder. Once you have satisfied the five year requirement you may qualify for Indefinite Leave to remain in the UK (ILR), which can be then be followed by British Naturalisation as a UK citizen.

Changes of Employment

If you wish to change employers you must get a new Certificate of Sponsorship from a licensed employer.
