This page provides information on the Skilled Worker Visa scheme and is intended for both IMG doctors who are on these visas, and for practices that are interested in being able to employ clinicians on visas.
For IMGs on Skilled Worker Visas
If you are an IMG doctor on the STW VTS and are currently working under a Skilled Worker Visa, you will need to ensure that your post-CCT plans are in place.
If you wish to work in STW as a qualified GP you will need to work for a sponsoring employer. The current position in STW is as follows:
- Most GP vacancies are advertised on the STW Training Hub website, and we encourage practices to state whether they are a sponsoring employer on job adverts
- Part of Dr Zeb’s role is to assist IMG doctors with the process of transition from the VTS to the post-CCT world
- Fees and costs payable by Skilled Worker Visa holders can be reimbursed by NHSE/I via the GP’s employing practice
