    Why is my Sponsor Licence Application Refused?

    We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.
    This video is about Sponsor Licence Application Refusal.

    The Home Office refuses Sponsor Licence applications for two main reasons.

    The first reason —and less devastating—is if you’ve submitted an incomplete application. You may have missed documents, or not completed part of the application. If this is the case, they will refund the application fee, and you can reapply without restriction. This type of refusal is easily avoided with some expert help and due diligence, although it will still cost you the time needed to reapply and receive approval.

    Second reason, if your application is refused because The Home Office questions the integrity of your claim, the result is much more serious. You will not receive a refund, and you will be barred from reapplying for six months. This can seriously impact operations, especially if you have a candidate you need to hire promptly.

    There are four areas where this refusal occurs.

    1. You have failed to show a genuine need for Non-EU skilled workers.

    2. You did not pass a Home Office compliance officer’s on-site visit.

    3. You listed support staff in your application that had questionable character or were not legitimate employees.

    4. You did not show an ability to maintain compliance as a Sponsor.

    These areas must be addressed in full before applying again. As always, the best defense is to have a strong and complete application.

    A Y & J Solicitors’ Review

    My experience with A Y & J Solicitors was really good. Very detailed and knowledgeable. All my questions were answered on time. They are very approachable and friendly. I would highly recommend them – it may be very simple query or a very complex case; you can trust them.


    Having found myself in a rather sticky situation I was desperate for advice/help/guidance. I found A Y & J Solicitors through a friend and with in minutes into my first phone call to them, felt a sense of tremendous peace of mind which I had longed for. Mr Yash spoke very professionally and together with his team went on to do the almost impossible and secure an ‘Out of time’ extremely complicated Tier 2 application for myself and a spouse visa for my wife. Yes they are expensive. But their services are well worth it. They are direct & almost every step of the way they were transparent and kept me updated on the status as and when they knew anything. With out a doubt, I can easily say that our experience with them has been fantastic and would highly recommend their services to any one i know that is looking for a good immigration solicitor. Keep up the excellent work Mr. Yash. God Bless. Thumbs up to the excellent team they have.

    I went to Globevisas on a friend’s recommendation and I’m glad I did that. These guys are very helpful and they know what they’re talking about. My ILR application was an extremely smooth experience and was granted without any hassles at all. I would recommend Globevisas to anyone who is looking for help to sort out their visa issues!
