Applying for a Sponsorship License
In order to bring foreign workers in the UK to take up employment legally employers must have a valid sponsorship license. What license you get will depend on what kind of workers are required, for example businesses will generally opt for workers on Tier 2 Visa’s (skilled workers for long term employment) or Tier 5 Visa’s (skilled temporary workers). You can apply for a license to cover either of these categories or both.
Your business must be based in the UK, must not be subject to a Bankruptcy Order and must not have a history of non compliance with Sponsorship regulations.
