(iv) Holders cannot switch between employees to employer.

It is valid for the duration of the contract and is not open-ended. Maximum time for which a Visa can be valid is five years, though this is likely to be the exception. Once your permit has been approved, it will be forwarded to the British embassy in your location you will be invited officially collection in your Country.

Below is the work permit application requirements.
1. Completion of the British Home Office form attached
2. Overseas travelers insurance policy certificate (OTIP)
3. A scanned copy of your international passport.
4. Signed Copy Of The Offer Letter.

THE OVERSEAS TRAVELERS INSURANCE POLICY (OTIP) COVER is a mandatory requirement by the British Immigration Service, this is because the policy is a prove that you are medically fit; to work in UK and also it is a per-requisite to renew your resident/worker's permit every year. The OTIP has benefits to the tune of ?9,500 000.00 (NINE MILLION AND FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND GBP) and the duration is one year, it should include benefits for loss of luggage, repatriations, medical, permanent disability and death etc.

The preferred insurance company by the British Immigration Service is WILCOT AND WAMMAT INSURANCE PLC, is a British Government owned insurance company located in UK. So you are to look for their agent in your location. After you have applied for the OTIP policy, you will be issued a certificate. You are to send me a copy of the certificate Issued via electronically as attachment.

These documents should be submitted to British Home Office within a week to enable your permit to be approved. When the permit has been approved, all relevant documents backing it will be forwarded to the British embassy in your location. Also your own copy will be sent to you, which you will be expected to present at the British embassy upon their official invitation.

Please we guide interested applicants to indicate their correct/present address, telephone and fax through which the British Embassy will contact you for official invitation upon approval of their work permit by the British Home office. Contact me if you have any difficulties getting the OTIP.

Call me if you have any question TEL: +447045751986

Please read carefully because this applies to every job offer you receive! 99% of email job offers are scams! No real company hires you without an in person, face to face interview. An email, online or telephone interview is always a scam! No real company ever charges any money for a job even for a visa or work permit! If they want you to pay and say they will refund the costs, you will just send money to a fake embassy official, travel agency or lawyer who is a really a scammer! Read: No real company, government or visa agent ever uses a free or public email address (,, etc.) Email addresses like,,, etc. are also free email addresses. Read: No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bank account or by Western Union or MoneyGram. Read: No real company uses a telephone number that begins with +44 70, +44 871, +44 870, +44 844, or +44 845. Those are forwarding numbers which are not in the UK. Read: There are no exceptions! Don't let a scammers convince you otherwise! A scammer is only as smart as his victim is naive! If something sounds too good to be true, it is a scam! Always "Google" all telephone numbers, email addresses and websites in any job offer to see if it has already been posted as a scam!
