Securing A Sponsor Licence
If your business is hoping to employ workers from abroad, you will need a sponsor licence. This will allow you to issue Certificates of Sponsorship to potential employees, which they will need when dealing with their visa application.
Applying for a sponsor licence can be complex. Both your business and the jobs you wish to fill must be eligible and you will need to provide documentary evidence of this. You will need to appoint individuals to certain posts to manage the sponsor licence once it has been granted and to deal with the ongoing compliance and reporting requirements.
We can prepare your sponsor licence application, to include collating the right paperwork in support. We also advise on the management of sponsor licences.
We will also go through the jobs you wish to fill and make sure that they are eligible. This includes showing that they are at an appropriate skill level, have the requisite minimum salary and are for a shortage occupation or are otherwise eligible.
If you have had a sponsor licence downgraded, we can work with you to improve your systems and ensure you are complying with regulations and implementing the action plan provided by UK Visas And Immigration.
If your sponsor visa application has been rejected, we can address any issues and, where possible, prepare a new application with the right documents to accompany it.
If your sponsor visa application has been refused because you have not met the requirements, we can advise you of changes to be made so that your organisation becomes eligible to apply.
Corporate Immigration Visas
We provide advice and representation for all types of corporate immigration visa application. We can work with you and your potential overseas employees to establish the best immigration route and prepare a robust visa application.
We will ensure that the most persuasive documentation is included with the application, giving the employee the highest possible chance of success.
We also provide advice and representation for the family members and dependants of overseas workers, who will need their own visa if they wish to come to the UK.
