Tier 2 Trainee Guide 2017

Trainees may need an extension to their visa if they require additional training time due to sick leave, maternity or remedial training, or if they change training programme.

The trainee must contact the Tier 2 Team in Yorkshire and the Humber to notify them about changes.

Near the end of the current visa expiring (we recommend approximately 3 months), trainees should ensure that their Tier 2 application documents and details are up-to-date and complete the application form for existing Tier 2 sponsored trainees. Once complete, please submit these documents along with the necessary supporting documents to the HEE Local Tier 2 team via email at tier2.yh@hee.nhs.uk

If you are applying for ILR, you will require a letter from your current sponsor.

Please inform the HEE Local Tier 2 Team via email at  tier2.yh@hee.nhs.uk with the following information:

  • Date of birth
  • Full name as stated on passport
  • Date started post
  • Expected CCT date
  • Specialty currently undertaking
  • A copy of your last pay slip
  • Statutory pay (i.e. if you have taken an unpaid leave, you must obtain a letter from your employer confirming the dates and duration)

Once received, this information will be used to produce a letter to support your application to the Home Office for Indefinite Leave to Remain. Once complete this letter will be sent to the National Tier 2 Team for authorisation. As such you must provide us with a minimum of 4 weeks’ notice of your appointment with the Home Office.

A letter will be posted to you and a copy sent via email for your personal records.

Once you have received a decision from the Home Office, you must inform the HEE Local Tier 2 Team via email at  tier2.yh@hee.nhs.uk with a copy of your new biometric card.

HEE will update your record and cancel your CoS which was issued to you for your Tier 2 visa (as per Home Office guidance).
