Corporate Immigration Assistance for Businesses
The UK and Irish Governments have extremely strict immigration regulations for non resident workers. Those from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Corporate immigration rules mean it is vitally important that Businesses comply with their legal requirements.
At PA Duffy and Company our immigration team offer specialised services for Businesses who want to bring skilled workers into the UK and Ireland from both EU and non EU countries. We offer a broad range of advice and representation on areas including Certificates of Sponsorship, Tier 2 Work Visa’s and the impact of Brexit on business and Immigration.
Certificates of Sponsorship – Employers must obtain a Certificate of Sponsorship for each foreign worker they wish to employ. When an employer receives a Certificate they will be given a reference number which can then be used by their prospective employee to apply for a Visa.
Tier 2 Work Visa’s – You can apply for a Tier 2 General Work Visa if you have been offered a skilled job in the UK and you’re outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. Applicants will require a Sponsorship Certificate from a licensed sponsor. Applicants can apply for a Tier 2 Visa up to 3 months before they are due to begin work and should receive a decision within 3 weeks.
In the ever changing landscape of corporate immigration law in the UK and Ireland businesses must be aware of their requirements as the penalties for non compliance can be severe. Our expert solicitors will tailor our services to your needs and work with your business to ensure that immigration issues don’t hold you back.
