To apply for, and acquire, the Tier 2 Sponsor Licence requires extensive effort. It is a mandatory requirement for UK-based organisations that need to employ skilled or highly qualified workers from outside the EEA.

The organisation must acquire a Sponsorship Licence and be registered with the Home Office as sponsor. Employing non-EEA workers without complying with UK immigration law may invite severe penalty charges.

Our expert advice and guidance will not only help you to acquire this necessary licence, but also to retain it.

Who Can Apply? Check Your Eligibility

Are you:

  • A genuine organisation with lawful operations in the UK?
  • An employer of key personnel who are honest, dependable and reliable?
  • Capable of managing sponsorship duties?
  • Offering genuine employment that meets the Tier 2 (General) skill level and pays an appropriate salary?

Poor Preparation May Cause Refusal

Some of the reasons for Sponsor Licence refusal are:

  • Not performing Sponsor Licence compliance duties.
  • Poor record keeping.
  • Not informing the UKVI on substantial changes to company structure and workforces.
  • Not responding to UKVI inquiries within their time frame.
  • Submitting inadequate documents to establish ‘genuine’ vacancy requirements.
