Duration for which the visa is granted

Duration for which the visa is granted
The tier 2 Work Permit is usually issued for a period ranging from 1 day up to 5 years, depending on the length of time requested by the sponsoring company. Ultimately the final decision is at the discretion of the Home Office.
Tier 2 Work Permit holders can become eligible to apply for the ILR if they have been living in the UK continuously for 5 years under the same work permit. If they have spent more than two years outside the UK during that time, they will no longer be eligible for ILR or permanent residency. Candidates with ILR status can go on to apply for UK citizenship on meeting citizenship requirements.
