Skilled Worker Sponsor License Application
If you intend to hire anyone from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) you must apply for a sponsor License, including if you are a small business or charity, which is granted by the Home Office.
The process of obtaining a sponsor license is often described as a privilege and not a right.
There are requirements that the employer must satisfy before they can be granted a license. All required documents should be sent to prove that they satisfy the following requirements:
- The company is a genuine organization operating lawfully in the UK.
- You have no previous history of immigration non-compliance or and criminal convictions.
- You are offering employment that is considered genuine and is in accordance with the terms of the Skilled Worker skills level and rates of pay.
- The key personal named on the application are deemed honest, dependable, and reliable.
Before applying for a sponsor license, carry out a mock audit to ensure that the company is fully compliant with its human resources systems.
