UK Work Visas Tier 2: Monthly distribution of sponsorship certificates – September 2018

For the second month in a row a minimum wage of £21,000 offered to non-EU qualified workers was sufficient for the British employers to obtain a certificate of sponsorship from the Home Office.

After the exclusion of doctors and nurses from the Tier 2 quotas in July 2018, the Home Office is now able to accept all requests from the British employers for the restricted sponsorship certificates.

Moreover, according to the latest decision of the Home Office on distribution of the sponsorship certificates, 512 certificates of sponsorship were not allocated and as a remaining balance were carried over to October 2018.

Total number of certificates of sponsorship granted in September – 1671.

The September allocation meeting took place on 11 September. All valid applications received by 5 September were successful if they scored at least 21 points (minimum salary threshold – £21,000).

The next monthly allocation meeting date is 11 October 2018.

Work Visas Tier 2: Monthly distribution of sponsorship certificates – August 2018

For the first time since last year, it was sufficient to offer a minimum wage of £ 21,000 to successfully obtain a sponsorship certificate for hiring qualified workers from abroad.

After the exclusion of doctors and nurses from the Tier 2 quotas in July 2018, the Home Office for the first time since 2017 was able to accept all requests from the British employers for the restricted sponsorship certificates.

According to the latest decision of the Home Office on distribution of the sponsorship certificates, the passing points dropped to the possible minimum level – 21.

Thus, as of the end of August 2018, the monthly quota of certificates in the amount of 2256 was distributed.

In order to hire a worker from outside of the EEA countries, the UK employer needs to obtain a Sponsor Licence from the Home Office. Although the process of obtaining a Sponsor Licence might seem straightforward, there are many peculiarities and practical issues that the British employer must take into account. Even once the Licence is granted, employers may still face additional checks and audits from the Home Office and will be required to comply with the numerous legal requirements.

To help the UK employers to deal with the practical issues of employing foreign workers and applying for a sponsor licence, we are organising this workshop.

Speakers:

Agenda:

  • Prevention of illegal working & sponsoring foreign skilled workers
  • UKVI compliance visits
  • Issuance of sponsorship certificates
  • Revocation of sponsor licence
  • Q&A session

The workshop will be followed by a networking reception.
