The Home office will grant a sponsorship licence to UK employers who wish to employ non-UK workers through the new points-based system, under routes such as the Skilled Worker visa.

If your organisation does not hold a valid sponsorship licence, you cannot hire overseas talent coming to the UK after 1 January 2021 or extend visas for current sponsored staff.

You need to be fully aware of your immigration duties & have standard processes and systems in place to maintain records as evidence of your compliance.

Apply for your first licence for access to a bigger talent pool, make an error-free application today that shows your competency to meet immigration duties from day 1.

Failing to submit all the necessary evidence for your application can raise concerns with the Home office on your ability to comply with their rules, resulting in refusal of your application. You may also lose your application fee.
