General Eligibility for Tier 2 (Intra-Company) You must have all of the following to be eligible for a Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer) visa:
certificate of sponsorship reference number;
an ‘appropriate’ salary;
£945 in savings – this is to prove you can support yourself and you must have had this in your bank account for 90 days before you apply.
(You don’t need to have £945 in savings if your sponsor is fully approved (‘A-rated) and they can certify that they’ll support and accommodate you for the first month you’re employed – check your sponsor’s rating.)
Sponsorship for your Tier 2 Visa A certificate of sponsorship is a reference number which holds information about the job and your personal details, and is provided by your sponsor. You will need to add your reference number to your Tier 2 application form, and you can only use it once. (Your certificate of sponsorship is valid for 3 months from the date it’s assigned to you.)

Long-term Staff applicants – at least £41,500 or the ‘appropriate rate’ for the role (whichever is higher);
Short-term Staff, Graduate Trainee or Skills Transfer applicants – at least £24,800 or the ‘appropriate rate’ (whichever is higher);
staff already in the UK on a Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer) visa or work permit issued before 6 April 2011 – at least the ‘appropriate rate.’
