Two new work visas for blue collar workers came into effect in April 2019, the Specified Skilled Worker (i) and Specified Skilled Worker (ii) for specific fields of employment.  Due to the influx of applications, processing times for Business Managers, Intra Company Transferees, and Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services visas have increased.

Employers who may be affected are encouraged to contact an immigration specialist for case-specific advice.
