Before Tier 2: Only for non EU countries with a cap of 22,000 per year (if applied from abroad). Also switching employers requires a labour market test (advertise job positions for 28 days to prove no suitable UK/EU work eligible for the post) and was much more difficult for companies to sponsor Now: EU/Non EU at par. No Cap on number of visas issues and no labour market test. So switching from one employer to another is much easier and only requires an offer in hand With both , you can apply for British Indefinite leave to remain/Permanent Residency after 5 years (+1 more for passport) In Summary, much easier to change employers and get sponsored with the new points based system vs the older ‘Tier 2’

So if someone switch from Tier 2 to skilled are they still eligible for ILR from 5 year route ??

Need some advice: Tldr: Can I travel on old (valid) visa stamp while new one is under administrative processing / additional security review? Context: I traveled to my home country last week, planning to return to US on June 5th. I have a H1B visa stamp valid until mid-July 2022 (from my old employer - I have a fresh i-129 approval from new employer). I decided to go to the US Embassy and apply for a new stamp so I would have a longer validity ...

Just founded a startup, but been coasting at FAANG.

I’ve never been a coaster and it’s hard for me to just be an “average” employee, but feel it’s the right thing to do so I can focus on the startup which is my ultimate goal. Anyone have advice?
