Work Permits for Scotland

First Permit Limited is one of the few specialist immigration advisers active in Scotland. Although the immigration rules and procedures for Scotland are broadly the same as for the rest of the UK, there are differences and changes are to be made to make the system different to the rest of the UK.

The Scottish Executive (which is the devolved government for Scotland) has identified that Scotland is likely to suffer a greater loss of skilled workers in the next few years as a result of the anticipated decline in population and an increase in the age profile of the population.

The Scottish Executive has launched a Fresh Talent initiative to encourage skilled individuals from elsewhere in the UK or from abroad to come to work and live in Scotland.
