I just have a basic question regarding English immigration. How many different types of visas are there? If you want to enter the country (work or moving purpose) which visa type would be beneficial? how can one change his/her student visa to a work visa? How easy/hard is this? The info that you will provide will help everyone who are interesed to study and work there.

Thank you

Send a PM to Deven. He is the best person to reply. It is fairly easy to change student visa into work permit provided you have a degree from UK. If you haven't got job in UK, the best way is to come as Higly Skilled Migrant (If you qualify for that). There are some training visa as well. Other visas except studnet are just like Tourist visa and will not give any facility such as medical and others. This is just a basic information. Check with Deven jee.

Yogesh bro
Thanks a bunch for the info. The reason behind I asking here is so that others could benefit from the same info that I am getting and Deven ji won't have to write the same thing five- ten different times in the pm. I am sure there are many among us who are seeking to go to England but dunno the best way to get in, putting them and theirs status in jeopardy. Anyways, your info did give me the base to do a little resarch on the matter. Thanks:)

Thanks,
The only reason I wrote Send a PM Deven Jee is to pull him here to answer the query as he works in this area but it was failed attempt.
