I have spent 3 years in the UK on a Tier 2 visa from July 2009 to July 2012. However, I left the UK and since then I am living outside the UK.
Now I am getting an opportunity again to work in the UK and my employer is interested in offering me a permanent position. I have been told that I will be given a Tier 2 visa again, but for 2 years only. My question is, will the new Tier 2 visa be extendable? What steps can I take if I want to continue my job on a long-term basis?
