Unlike a work permit where the employer applies, it is the individual
who makes the application.An application can be made either when
the individual is outside the UK or within the UK provided the applicant
is here other than as a visitor.
The HSMP provides for an applicant to score
points by reference to a number of different categories
• Educational Qualifications
• Work Experience
• Past Earnings
• Achievement in your chosen field
• HSMP Priority Applications for General Practitioners
• Partner’s achievements
In addition, there is a separate young person
assessment for under 28 year olds which lessens the required work
experience and past earnings to score points. An applicant needs
to score at lest 65 points in total but does not need to score
in each category.
In addition, to scoring 65 points or more
the applicant must also show that they will be able to continue
their career in the UK.
