Providing honest and affordable advice, representation, and legal services to clients nationwide.
At Hadi Law Solicitors, our Immigration Lawyers can assist you with obtaining a Scale-up Worker Visa and advise you on your options for staying in the UK once your visa has expired. The Scale-up Worker Visa is designed to allow fast-growing UK businesses to recruit talent from overseas to scale up. What is unique about this visa route is a worker can qualify for two years’ leave to remain; however, the approved scale-up business need only provide sponsorship for the first six months.

What are the eligibility requirements for a Scale-up Worker Visa?
To qualify for entry into the UK on the Scale-up route, you need to provide evidence that:
You have been offered a position with an approved scale-up business for six months or more.
You have a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ from your employer with information about the UK-based role.
The role you have been offered is featured on the list of eligible occupations.
You will be paid the required minimum salary in your new job.
You can read, speak, write, and understand English.
Remember, if you do not meet the eligibility requirements for a Scale-up Worker Visa, our Business Immigration Solicitors will recommend other options, for example, the Skilled Worker Visa or Global Talent route.
How long can I remain in the UK on a Scale-up Visa?
Your initial visa will allow you to live and work in the UK for up to two years. Before your visa expires, you will need to apply to have it extended.
To qualify for an extension, you must show:
You were employed in the position listed on your certificate of sponsorship for at least six months.
You met the earnings requirements during at least half your stay on your most recent visa.
What is the ‘earnings requirement’ applicable to a Scale-up Worker Visa?
To meet the earnings requirement during the last half of your most recent stay in the UK on a Scale-up Worker Visa, you must have earned a monthly salary equivalent to at least £33,000 per year. Earnings from self-employment cannot be considered in your calculations.
The earnings requirement is one of the most complex elements of the Scale-up Worker Visa. Our Business Immigration Solicitors will cut through all the complications and swiftly advise you on whether or not you meet the requirement. By collaborating with our team throughout the life cycle of your Scale-up Worker Visa, you can be confident that you will have all the information you need to ensure you meet the extension requirements well before you make your application.
