It has come to our attention that some visa agents operating in Bangladesh are offering potential visa applicants the opportunity of work permit employment in the UK. If you have any information regarding this please contact the British High Commission in Dhaka by email.

Most work-based categories for visa applications are now part of the UK’s points-based system for immigration. The UK no longer issues work permits to non-European nationals. Applicants should therefore treat with caution any new offers of work permit employment in the UK. These are unlikely to be genuine.

Further information about entry to the UK for employment is available here.
