Right to work checks necessary for some Tier 2 extensions

Sponsors should be aware that right to work checks may be necessary if a Tier 2 visa extension is applied close to the expiry date.

Tier 2 sponsored staff should usually apply to extend their visas two months before their current visa expires, which in most cases, means they will receive their new visa before, or just after, the previous expiry date.

However, if a last-minute application is submitted by post, and a decision is not made within 28 days of the expiry date, the employer must conduct follow-up right-to-work checks.
