Sponsor License Applications Throughout Central London

We can help ensure the success of a sponsor licence application in London. An application for a Sponsor Licence is a process which allows UK based employers andeducation institutions to prove to the Home Office that they are eligible to be placed on the register of sponsors and that they genuinely wish to take on migrant workers or students.

Application process


The sponsor licence application process includes:

  • Demonstrating your eligibility.
  • Making an online application.
  • Submitting hard copy documents to the Home Office in support of your application.
  • Preparing for a visit can be unannounced, by the Home Office Compliance officials pre or post-grant of the licence.


The Home Office is looking to establish four main criteria:
a. Are you a genuine organisation operating lawfully in the UK?
b. Are the key personnel named in your application honest, dependable and reliable?
c. Do you have an effective HR system in place to carry out your sponsor duties?
d. If applying under Tier 2 (General), can you offer genuine employment that meets the Tier 2 (General) skill level and appropriate rates of
pay.

If your sponsor licence application is successful you will be placed on the Home Office register of sponsors and you will be able to issue Certificate of Sponsorship or Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies.

Once a sponsor licence application is approved, the Sponsor Licence is valid for 4 years.

There are ongoing duties that must be diligently performed by the sponsoring organisations during the span of the sponsor licence. Failure to carry out such duties can have serious ramifications for the sponsor as well as the migrant.
