Employers / Corporate Immigration

Becoming a Sponsor

Are you a business employing non British and non European nationals or an educational establishment enrolling foreign students? You will then need to apply to the Home Office for a sponsor license. This will enable you to employ foreign nationals and enrol international students.

The process of becoming Home Office approved sponsor is very technical and can be very lengthy and expensive and any mistake can lead to refuse your application which will cost you a lot of stress, money and time.

You must be aware that from 27 November 2008 all employers who wish to recruit foreign national workers under the tier 2 visa category will first need to register for a Sponsorship Licence with the Home Office.


What you have to show to the Home Office?

  • You are a legitimate organisation working within the law in the UK;
  • There are no reasons to believe that you are a threat to immigration control; and
  • Your organisation is committed to fulfilling its sponsorship duties.
