Assisting corporate clients with obtaining, using and maintaining sponsor licences is one of our specialisms.

The sponsorship system will form an integral part of the new post-Brexit Points-Based System come January 2021. With freedom of movement from the EU coming to an end, now is the time firms are preparing sponsor licences.

From making the initial sponsor licence application to avoiding compliance hazards and challenging adverse UK Visas and Immigration decisions, we will help you to navigate UKVI’s requirements.

 

Tier 2 (General), Tier 2 (ICT) and Tier 5 (Temporary Worker) sponsor licence applications

We advise on all types of sponsor licence applications and help you avoid the common pitfalls. We can ensure that you are equipped to demonstrate that you have suitable human resource processes in place and provide the required supporting documents to be approved as a sponsor.

No matter the size of your organisation, we will review your processes and policies and work with you to ensure you are ready to be compliant with your sponsor duties.
