All About Getting A Sponsor Licence

Your organisation will need a sponsor licence to sponsor any overseas national you wish to employ if they are not a ‘settled worker’ or do not otherwise have immigration permission to work for you in the UK.
Sponsor Licence
  • Sponsorship is a privilege, not a right. Significant trust is placed on a sponsor organisation, which means you must play your part in ensuring the immigration system is not abused.
  • Legally operating UK entity can apply provided they satisfy the eligibility requirements
  • Ensure you understand what roles can be sponsored and the minimum salary requirements associated with the roles
  • Ensure your organisation understands the sponsor duties and has a system or process to ensure compliance with the requirements
  • Ensure that the key personal are identified and they understand their roles
  • Identify the supporting documents and evidence you need based on the sector your organisation operates in
  • Once all of the above is checked, you are able to make the application and pay the correct fee based on the size/type of organisation. You must also send through the supporting evidence
  • If you’ve done all of the above, wait for the home office to approve you and add your organisation to the list of sponsors!
We can assist you in each step of the way and we typically take 3-5 working days to complete a submission once instructed. Contact us today and let’s get started.
