HGV Tanker Driver Visa
Certain foreign citizens who can drive fuel tankers can enter the UK without a visa until the 15th October 2021 under a new immigration concession.
This concession applies if you arrive between 1 October 2021 and 15 October 2021.
The Home Office published the Concession for temporary leave to allow employment as HGV fuel drivers on Saturday 2 October. It allows entry outside the normal Immigration Rules until the 15th October 2021, with permission lasting until the 31st March 2022, for people who:
-Are not visa nationals
-Have an EU licence to drive HGV fuel tankers
-Have an “endorsement letter” from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
-Will be employed as a fuel tanker driver
-Will not need to claim benefits
-Intend to leave the UK afterwards
The scheme has been split up: 4,700 Seasonal Worker visas for drivers in the food haulage sector (expiring on 28 February 2022), and 300 places for fuel drivers under this concession. The terms of the concession itself do not mention such a limit, but presumably the business department will only issue 300 approval letters.
