Immigration Sponsor Licence Applications
In order to sponsor migrant workers an organisation must obtain a skilled worker sponsor licence. The Skilled Worker Sponsor was previously known as Tier 2 Sponsor Licence (general).
Once an organisation’s sponsor licence has been granted by the Home Office, it can then recruit migrants from overseas.
The process of applying for a sponsor licence can be challenging. The Home Office will undertake routine audits of the human resource systems (for organisations employing migrants) and other systems used in your organisation and can revoke or downgrade your licence for non-compliance with your duties. Maintaining compliance with sponsor duties is critical. A failure to comply with your sponsor duties should not be overlooked, as it can have huge ramifications for your business and your migrants, whether they are employees or students.
