The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you are a religious worker or religious missionary, then you may be eligible to apply for a Religious Worker Visa under the Tier 2 Work category. This will permit you to move from the US to the UK for three years and one month. You will need to take a position as a Minister of Religion (or similar) while you are there.
The Immigration Advice Service can assist you in putting you in touch with an expert lawyer who can advise you about your Minister of Religion Visa UK. Your lawyer will guide you through your visa application and be your personal point-of-call. We can assist you in obtaining documents such as a Certificate of Sponsorship from your UK Sponsor.
Our lawyers will also meticulously check every document you provide to support your application. You will also receive a Letter of Representation to accompany your application. This provides details of your case and supporting UK immigration law. Call now on +1844 290 6312 or make an inquiry online to speak to an expert immigration lawyer.

This will increase for any dependents (children, wife, husband or civil partner) that you plan on taking with you to the UK.
Yes, you can work a second job in the UK but your first job must come as a priority. Any other jobs you take must not impact or negatively affect your sponsored job.
Your second job needs to either be in the same line of religious work or a profession on the UK’s Shortage Occupation List. These jobs are in high demand by the UK government.

Yes, you can extend your Tier 2 Religious Visa for an additional three years. However, you will need to provide evidence that you are still required in your religious working position. You will also need to show that you meet the same requirements as you did in your first application.
