Worker Migrant - Health and Care Visa

A new Health and Care Visa will be available to qualified doctors, nurses and other health professionals with a job offer from the NHS, an organisation or business which provides services commissioned by the Isle of Man NHS or the Department of Health and Social Care, who have been trained at a recognised standard and who have good working English.

It provides fast-track entry to the Isle of Man for qualifying health professionals and their families.

There are reduced fees and priority support for Health and Care Visa applications for both the main Worker Migrant applicant and their dependents. Applicants and their dependents can apply for the Health and Care Visa under the Worker Migrant route.

The Health and Care Visa will be available to applicants for entry clearance from 04 August 2020 and applicants who are making an application for leave to remain in country from 03 November 2020.

How to apply for a Health and Care visa

The application process is very similar to a standard Worker Migrant visa. In order to qualify for a Health and Care Visa, the employer must confirm on the Confirmation of Employment application that the job offer is eligible for the Health and Care Visa.

Employers should refer to the Confirmation of Employment Guidance notes for further information on the Health and Care Visa.
