Are there any additional eligibility requirements I need to meet if I am from India?

Yes. Indian citizens can meet the additional requirement imposed on them either through a demonstration of their education status or through work experience. An applicant must hold a qualification which is equal to or higher than RQF level 6 and evidence must be provided of this.

Alternatively, the applicant must have a minimum of three years’ work experience in a professional role equivalent to an eligible occupation listed in Appendix Skilled Occupations of the Immigration Rules. You will need to demonstrate you have the required length of work experience.
