Sponsor Licence

What is a Sponsor Licence

The Sponsor Licence is for businesses or educational institutions who wish to sponsor foreign workers or students who wish to work or study in the United Kingdom. If you wish to employ someone from outside the EU, a business in the UK will require a Tier 2/Tier 5 Sponsor Licence. Once the Licence is successfully obtained from the Home Office, the individual who the business wishes to employ can submit an application for a Visa to come to the UK for work purposes.

What are the main requirements for a Sponsor Licence?

Each case is decided on its own merits and we would therefore advise for any individual considering this visa route to the UK to book a Consultation with our Solicitors to obtain advice specific to your particular needs.

However, we have briefly outlined the requirements an individual will need to satisfy in order to obtain a Sponsor Licence to employ a foreign worker in the UK.

The Business will need to demonstrate that it is a genuine business and is legally allowed to trade or offer services in the UK. The Business will need to appoint a “key contact” who will ensure that the Business carries out its duties as a Sponsor and ensuring compliance with appropriate Rules and Regulations. You will also need to demonstrate that there is a genuine position available for the potential worker and can be paid according to the skill level specified by the Home Office.
