  • Up-to-date advice for the sponsorship licence process, including guidance on the documentation required.
  • Thorough guidance to aid compliance with the law and the duties and responsibilities of the employer, including potential penalties.
  • Advice regarding the process and what evidence is required for the Leave to Remain and Entry Clearance applications.

  • Support with preparing appropriate advertising.
  • Assistance with follow-up assessments, following completion of the advertising campaigns.
  • Help with any miscellaneous immigration concerns.

The UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) is responsible for the issuing licences regarding sponsorship. In addition, they rate sponsors as A or B, conduct visits and carryout audits to monitor compliance and enforce immigration regulations.

A sponsor, once successfully registered, can apply for a number of Certificates of Sponsorship (CoS), to use for all applicants whom they intend to sponsor. A Certificate of Sponsorship provides assurance that a potential employee will be allowed to enter the UK in order to take up employment with your organisation. It is the sponsors responsibility to establish whether a potential applicant meets the relevant requirements for Entry Clearance/Leave to Remain as outlined the Immigration Rules.

Penalties for non-compliance
The sponsor must ensure that the UK immigration sponsorship licence conditions are met. The UKVI has a right to carry out checks either before or after the licence is granted to ensure the accuracy of the information provided regarding the sponsee and the sponsoring organisation. A visit from the UKVI with include assessment of whether the sponsor is:

  • Satisfactorily monitoring immigration status of all migrant workers.
  • Keeping migrant employee data up to date.
  • Accurately keeping records to show compliance with the conditions outlined.
  • Concordance with sponsorship duties.

If any breaches of the above are found a sponsor will have their licence downgraded to B rating, suspended or revoked. Leading to potentially serious consequences for both the sponsored migrants and the employer.
