Sponsoring migrant workers
17 November 2016
The process and requirements for sponsoring non-EEA national workers in the UK are complicated. At the same time, the rules are strict, and the consequences of noncompliance could be detrimental to both the employer and its sponsored migrants.
This Inbrief introduces the Points-Based System. It explains the sponsor licence application process and the process for sponsoring workers under Tier 2. It also reviews the Tier 2 visa application process.
This Inbrief is intended as general guidance only. A member of Lewis Silkin’s immigration team would be happy to advise on your organisation's specific requirements,
including how to apply for your sponsor licence and sponsor non-EEA nationals to work.
