I'm a Syrian passport holder and a resident in Turkey. I was offered a job in the UK and I want to move there. My question is how good are my chances considering the current situation in Syria? And what can I do to improve them?

Note the fact that acceptance rate dropped from ~70% to ~40% in the last 3 years.

Some background: I'm a Software Engineer with ~4 years of experience, a B.Sc. holder from a British university (studied remotely), and I've never been to the UK or any EEA country before; I'm 23, and my financial situation is considerably good. I'll be applying for a Tier 2 (General) visa.


Turns out not to be so bad. I was accepted.

You just need to show that you have:

  • a clean history
  • a sustainable job
  • sufficient funds (so that they know they won't be spending money on you next year.)
