UK Companies intending to sponsor(employ) non-British citizens or non-EEA citizens would be required to have a UKVI sponsorship license and be on the UKVI Tier 2 and 5 registers of a sponsor.
Our business immigration lawyers focus on obtaining new sponsorship licenses for businesses regardless of their size. We have an employer-friendly and focused approach which provides business owners and human resources personnel with a complete managed solution. The entire process will be project managed by us from the point successful issuance of a license by the UKVI to the visa being granted to the prospective employee.
We will commence the process by scheduling an initial telephone call with the firm’s key contact. That is, the relevant human resources officer or even the migrant who wishes to be sponsored. This will enable us to ascertain the eligibility of the company for the issuance of the license. During the application process, we will visit your site to carry out a mock audit in a bid to ensure that the company meets the necessary requirements in relations to the issuance of the license.
