IMGSS - Work Permits & Visas

It is the responsibility of the overseas trainee and the relevant employing body to ensure that the appropriate work permit and/or visa is obtained. Under the Medical Training Initiative Scheme, applications for a work permit must be sought in liaison with the employing authority and the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC). 

The AoMRC acts as the national sponsor of the MTI Scheme for the requirements of the UK Border Agency (UKBA).
