You have been granted a UK visa that allows you to reside in the UK, study, work here or do business...
Once you have your Tier 2 or 5 Sponsor Licence, you will be able to apply for Certificates of Sponsorship (CoS). These will enable you to sponsor non-EEA nationals whom you wish to recruit.
There are two types of Certificates of Sponsorship:
- Restricted Certificates of Sponsorship – these are for prospective employees who are living overseas and wish to come to the UK to work for your organisation, and;
- Unrestricted Certificates of Sponsorship – these are issued to people already in the UK or family members (dependants) of Tier 4 migrants who are switching to a Tier 2 visa
We can assist your organisation with obtaining Certificates of Sponsorship and ensure you understand your compliance duties in related areas such as conducting Residential Labour Market Tests (RLMT). Failure to apply for Certificates of Sponsorship correctly or running an RLMT without keeping correct records or placing advertisements in the right place can lead to severe adverse consequences.
When it comes to Sponsor Licence compliance, investing in expert legal advice can save you inordinate amounts of time, money, and stress. Our team of immigration law specialists will explain your duties and responsibilities clearly and help you achieve 100% compliance.
