Worker Migrant - Health and Care Visa

In order to support the Isle of Man National Health Service (NHS) and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) following the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cabinet Office has agreed a policy which allows qualifying health professionals and their families to benefit from a lower application fee and a fast-tracked application process when applying for a Worker Migrant visa. This is referred to as the Worker Migrant Health and Care visa.


To be considered a qualifying health professional, you will need to have a job offer from the:

  • Isle of Man NHS
  • an organisation/business which provides services commissioned by the Isle of Man NHS  or
  • the Department of Health and Social Care

The policy and eligibility requirements are set out in the Confirmation of Employment Guidance notes.

How to apply for a Worker Migrant - Health and Care visa

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

Employers should refer to the Confirmation of Employment Guidance notes for eligibility requirements and further information on the Worker Migrant - Health and Care visa policy.
