Working in the UK is a dream for many and a reality for some. To achieve this one needs to undergo the points-based immigration system. This scheme was phased in between 2008 and 2010 and is composed of five “tiers” which replaced all the previous work permits and entry schemes, including Scotland’s Fresh Talent Initiative. The system is administered by the UK Border Agency and includes visas for Entrepreneurs , Investors and Exceptional Talent (Tier 1), Skilled workers (Tier 2), Students (Tier 3), Temporary Workers and Youth Mobility (Tier 5).
