It will provide an overview of the key sponsor duties and take you through the sponsor compliance process.

The Home Office has long outsourced immigration to employers. If an employer wants to employ a worker who is not settled in the UK, they require authorisation from the Home Office. This authorisation is known as a ‘sponsor licence’. Employers must apply to the Home Office for a sponsor licence and the Home Office will decide to either approve or refuse the application. Employers who hold a sponsor licence are known as ‘sponsors’. In return for this freedom to sponsor workers, sponsors make a pledge that they accept all the duties of sponsorship.
