Securing Visa Sponsorship

Securing visa sponsorship is a pivotal step for individuals seeking to live and work in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada or the USA. With a myriad of opportunities and a dynamic job market, western nations are an attractive destination for many. However, the process of finding a sponsor can be challenging.

Visa sponsorship is a legal requirement for non-UK residents to work in the United Kingdom. Employers must be licensed by the UK government to sponsor individuals. Prospective employees must secure a job with a licensed sponsor to obtain a work visa. It’s crucial to comprehend the visa categories available, such as the Skilled Worker Visa (fomerly Tier 2), which is commonly used for skilled workers.

 

What is visa sponsorship?

If a UK employer wishes to employ a person who is not a settled worker, or who does not otherwise have immigration permission to work for them in the UK, they will need to be authorised by the Home Office. ...This authorisation is known as a ‘sponsor licence’, and employers who hold a sponsor licence are known as ‘sponsors’.

A worker must have an offer of a job which meets the relevant criteria from an approved sponsor before they can make a valid application to enter or stay in the UK on the Worker or Temporary Worker routes. The sponsor confirms this by assigning a Certificate of Sponsorship to the worker.

Sponsorship plays two main roles in a worker’s application for permission to enter or stay in the UK:

01. where relevant, it provides evidence that the worker will fill a genuine vacancy in a skilled occupation and will be paid appropriately

02. it involves a pledge from the sponsor that it accepts all of the duties of sponsorship.

 

Types of sponsor licence

There are two broad types of sponsor licence employers can apply for:

01.Worker: for skilled or long-term employment ...

02.Temporary Worker: for specific types of temporary employment
