Seeing that you are not currently based in the UK, and apparently not even allowed to travel and/or work there (if I understand the remark about visas correctly), my advice -given the current economic conditions and employment situation in the UK- is: don't. Nobody will pay for you to travel round the world for an interview, especially as folks with 4 years of Java/JEE experience -that are allowed to work in the UK, and are already there- are in plentiful supply. I don't see anything in your post that would make companies go an extra mile specifically for you.

Thanks for your nice response.

See i have been working in IBM for more than 4 years.But the think is there is no onshore requirements in our project.


My question is how can i apply work permit visa(UK) for long term from Bangalore,India.

As a 4+ guys how many weeks or months would takes to get an interview and job.

How is the IT market in uk for java/j2ee platform.

which part of city in uk is good for living and work environment.



Regards,
Jain.

I'm sure the UK government has many web pages (or even web sites) devoted to explaining immigration and visa issues. Much better to go to the source than to rely on hearsay in matters such as fundamental as this.

Hi Jain,

Before answering to your questions,may i know the reason behind looking for a long term job in UK??
Are you planning to relocate to UK??
Anyways,please find below my answers.

How do i get into uk for java/j2ee job for long term?

If your company provides you with an onsite opportunity you can. Else,you have to apply for Highly skilled Migrant Visa
(Tier 1) which, i believe has been stopped from 23 Dec 2010.
Please check http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/workingintheuk/tier1/general/ for further info

what kind of visa(uk) should i apply for long term?

Again,check in website

how much salary i can be expect as a 4 years exp guy?

No idea.Maybe someone working in UK can provide some information

how many days will takes to find and get a jobs there for 4 years java/j2ee guy?

Absolutely nobody can answer this as this depends on multiple factors.
1. Your technical skills set
2. The current market in UK
3. Demand for your skills in UK

what is minimum and maximum salary i can ask if i get job?

You can check in Google

Can i apply and attend a interview in india for uk jobs?

I don't think so.I haven't heard of people getting jobs in UK from India through telephonic interviews.

And please note that it is India NOT india
And,of course,Ulf's advice was perfect.Java/J2EE skill sets are already available in plenty.
