Dubai's New UK Immigration Rules

The UK government introduced new reforms and policies that make the process of student visa to work visa transition easier. It also facilitates students to bring their dependents with them to the country.  

The SOL (Shortage Occupation List) is now extended with more occupations in the construction sector. 

The five additional construction-related occupations include:


Bricklayers and Masons


Roofers, roof tillers, and slaters


Carpenters and joiners


Other building and construction trades not categorized elsewhere



Doctors who are specialized in speciality training can get up to 4 months of extension upon the expiration of their Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS). This gives them more time to acquire other immigration permissions as a General practitioner under a licensed sponsor.
