Sponsorship Licence Process (Tier 2, 4 & 5)
The application process is done online for which we can either complete on your behalf or provide the support required. The questions are complex and require a detailed assessment of records and data of your company before proceeding. Once the online application is complete all supporting documents and the appropriate fee must be submitted to the UKBA within 10 working days. If all requirements have been met then current guidance is that the Sponsorship Licence will be granted in 17 - 18 weeks but this is likely to vary depending on the UKBA backlog.
The UKBA may visit your company before reaching a decision. It is essential that all employees, paperwork and records relating to your company are available on the date of inspection. We would advise you on compliance to ensure that this goes smoothly.
A Sponsorship Licence is currently issued for 4 years.
