As part of the planned transition for customers to submit all applications from www.gov.uk via UKVI's new online application system, the following changes to the Tier 2 visa application process will come into force on 12 November 2015.

Tier 2 – Premium Service Centre (PSC) customers

  • The Tier 2 paper application form, for PSC use only, will be removed from www.gov.uk along with the standalone appointment booking function.
  • Tier 2 premium customers can now submit applications and book PSC appointments online at www.gov.uk.


Tier 2 – Dependents

  • Tier 2 will be removed from the Points Based System (PBS) dependent paper form. This means that all Tier 2 dependant applications made from 12 November will need to be made via the online application process at www.gov.uk.

The PBS dependent paper form will remain on www.gov.uk for use by Tier 1 and Tier 5 dependents.
