    from my understanding they rarely say never! If you can get a sponsership from employer or can prove that you are able to support yourself financially there are other classes of visas to give you at least temp visas then after a few years you could apply for permanent

    Hi Mel

     

    What is your occupation? If it is on the MODL, your age will not count against you although, as Ian says, you would have to look at Employer Nominated visas.

     

    Pease see the following links:

    If you currently run a successful UK business that meets turnover - you could look at the Buisness Owner Visa as an option - I beleive age limit on this is 55.

    Hi Foxychick

     

    I don't know anything meaningful about business skills visas but I believe you are right.

     

    Good thinking. Well done.

     

    Cheers

    Or you could move to New Zealand, which I believe accepts skilled workers up to age 49 and when I last looked does not discriminate on the basis of age (i.e. you don't lose 5 points every five years).

     

    Its been a while since I looked tho'....
