Scotland Work Application Date Set

Scotland Work Application Date Set

Swansea City have announced the date for Jason Scotland's work permit application.

On the 4th July the Home Office will hear Scotland's application for a Work permit following his move from St Johnstone.

Scotland has signed on a two year deal subject to gaining a work permit.

He was hot property on the Transfer market with the Swans beating Birmingham City, Hearts and Southend to his signature.

Home office guidelines on work permit criteria.

''A player must have played for his country in at least 75% of its competitive 'A' team matches he was available for selection, during the two years preceding the date of the application..the player's country must be at or above 70th place in the official FIFA world rankings when averaged over the two years preceding the date of the application...if a club wishes to retain the services of a player, they should submit a new application before the work permit expires. If the work permit criteria are satisfied a permit will be issued for the period of a player's contract up to a maximum of five years.'


I do hope the club can secure a work permit for Scotland - his signing has been a real coup for the club.

He is meant to be one of the first names on the team sheet for T&T he's one of their best players so he must have started at least 75% especially after the World Cup

Hope the Home Office approves the application. From his record, he will improve our strike force.

The reason he is having to reapply is because they changed the rules. If he had played another season in Scotland trhen we wouldn't need to get a work permit for him but they changed the rules so he still has another season before he can move without a permit. There shouldn't be any rrason for us to not get the work permit approved!
