Securing Your Home Office Sponsorship Licence: Comprehensive Assistance and Guidance

Here at Immtell, we demystify the intricacies of the Points Based System (PBS), fostering an accessible route for global talents intending to relocate to the UK. Our comprehensive services cover everything from assessing eligibility for a UK sponsored work visa to navigating the application process, and ultimately guiding UK businesses in securing and maintaining a Home Office Sponsorship Licence.

The Home Office Sponsorship Licence is a pivotal element for any UK-based business or organisation aiming to employ foreign nationals. Acquiring this licence entails a thorough understanding of Sponsor Duties, their accurate implementation, and adherence to the UKVI Sponsor Licence process to maintain compliance and avoid potential sanctions.

Securing a Home Office Sponsor Licence allows UK employers to access the skilled foreign workforce, a move that necessitates meeting all legal prerequisites. The Licence is bestowed upon employers who can provide a legitimate requirement for skilled foreign labour, manage their sponsored workers’ visas and immigration status effectively, and demonstrate appropriate organisational and financial resources.

Our team, composed of skilled UK immigration experts, holds years of experience in streamlining the complexities of the PBS, ensuring paperwork is accurately, efficiently, and timely submitted. With our expertise, businesses can access global talent whilst maintaining full compliance, simplifying the process of acquiring a Home Office Sponsor License.

The PBS, under the administration of UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI), covers various visa categories which are listed below. Click on them for more detailed information on how Immtell can be of assistance.

Primarily, the UK’s PBS system branches into two main categories that serve as key solutions for most businesses. These include:

Skilled Worker Visa
  • Intended for longer term assignments, localisation and permanent employment
  • Must meet the English language requirement
  • The UK role must be considered at or above UK A-Level (RQF3
  • An individual can be sponsored under this visa category indefinitely
  • Leads to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after 5 years continuous residence
  • Learn More
    Global Business Mobility Visa – Senior or Specialist Worker
  • Intended for temporary assignments for up to 5 or 9 years (depending on salary)
  • Employee should have worked for the company outside of the UK for a minimum of 12 months unless a "high earner"
  • The UK role must be considered at or above UK Bachelor's Degree (RQF6)
  • No English language requirement
  • Does not lead to permanent residency /Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)
  • Learn More

    Some UK businesses may be better suited to one of the Temporary Worker visa categories. However, this is typically only used by business using the Government Authorised Exchange scheme for certain graduates. There are times when one of the other Temporary Worker, Scale-Up, Start-Up or Innovator UK visa routes might be appropriate, and we would be happy to discuss your circumstances with you.
