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.
