The HSMP program. Procedure.
The HSMP program. Procedure.
On this page you can see the procedure for submitting documents for the program Highly Skilled Migrant Program (HSMP).
An important difference of HSMP from other immigration programs is that documents in the UK Immigration and Nationality Directorate can be submitted by a lawyer on behalf of the client while the candidate is in his country or in the UK. Also, we draw attention to the main difference between HSMP and the usual work permit-the specialist is not required to have a specific offer from the employer. He can hire for work, and can open his own business.

Please note that our company provides immigration services, we are not engaged in the subsequent employment of our customers. However, after obtaining permission from the HSMP program, you can find an employer yourself, without any assistance, through the British specialized employment agencies, since you will already have the right to work in the UK. And of course, before you contact us please evaluate your opportunities and visit some web resources of employment agencies:
After the first 12 months of residence, no one expects the immigrants to report on the full implementation of all previously stated intentions. However, it will be necessary to show whether you have a job or job offer, and also to show what attempts were made to find one if you do not have a job at the moment. The most important will also show that you were “economically active” either as a hired worker, a free entrepreneur, or by combining both the first and second for a while, not necessarily all 12 months, and were able to provide for themselves and their family in the UK during the first year of residence.
Thus, to obtain a further status, you do not need to already have a permanent job in this country, but you must certainly keep serious intentions to find one, and also want and intend to continue to live in this country.
