    Migrate to UK as Oracle Apps DBA
    Monday, April 30, 2007
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Today's post is dedicated to Non-UK resident Oracle Apps DBA's who wish to work in UK.

    In order to start working as an Apps DBA in UK, you should have a valid working Visa (For non UK residents). This Visa can either be sponsored by your UK employer (Most employers don't prefer to sponsor visas) or you (as an individual) can apply for Visa under HSMP (Highly Skilled Migration Program).

    There are three steps if you wish to move to UK for working as an Oracle Apps DBA.
    1. Getting Visa (My recommendation, Go for HSMP instead of someone sponsoring your Visa)
    2. Entry clearance (For those not currently in UK)/ FLR (For those who are already working in UK under working Visa sponsored by company in UK)
    3. Finding right job/project (We can help you on this) on permanent/contract basis.

    HSMP takes around 4-6 weeks and EC/FLR (Entry Clearance/Further Leave to remain) takes another 4-6 weeks. You can apply for HSMP via agent or yourself (my advice DON'T apply via agent) For more information on HSMP see below. Once you get HSMP next step is to find Oracle Apps DBA Job in UK, which can be either permanent or on contract (My recommendation, go for contracting). Based on your experience you can get 30-65 K £ per annum on permanent employment and 300-700 £ per day on contract basis (usually for a period of 3-6 months with extensions).

    How to get HSMP or more information about HSMP ?
    In order to clear HSMP you should get 75 points in various categories (Education, Earning, Age ...) and should clear english language requirement. (Graduation in English or ""IELTS"" cleared)

    For more information on HSMP Guidelines click here and for HSMP Form Click Here
    For Apps DBA Jobs in UK, Two good sites which you may wish to bookmark are and

    If you are Oracle Apps DBA with 3+ years of experience and wish to work with Us mail your CV at

    How We can help you ?

We can help you in finding right client/job/project or even help you in moving to UK (No charges and No obligation). so next question coming to your mind might be

    Why are we doing this ?
