Welcome to the Sunlight Group
The Sunlight Group is an approved UK Tier 2 Visa Sponsorship Employer.
If you are a Skilled Worker looking to continue your career in the UK Healthcare industry, we can help.
If your application is successful, your visa can last for up to 5 years before you need to extend it as long as you still meet the eligibility requirements.
After 5 years, you may be able to apply to settle permanently in the UK (also known as ‘indefinite leave to remain’). This gives you the right to live, work and study here for as long as you like, and apply for benefits if you’re eligible.
