Update for Tier 2 Sponsors Relating to In Country Applications

From 20 September 2017, the Biometric Enrolment Letter (BEL) for all sponsored workers will automatically be created when they complete their online application.

This change applies to workers applying for further leave in the Tier 2 General, Creative and Sporting and Ministers of Religion standard and priority postal applications.

The UK employers should note that their sponsored workers will be able to access and print the BEL at the same time as their document checklist. They must then take their BEL to the Post Office to give their biometric information.

The sponsors (employers) should make their workers aware of the change and encourage the workers to enrol their biometrics and post their supporting documents swiftly.
