STEP ONE: Assessment of eligibilitY
A representative from the potential host organisation must work with their candidate to fill in the following form. Please be aware that submitting this form does not ensure that we will be able to sponsor you.
We strongly advise that you begin the assessment at least 4-6 weeks before you intend to start your job.
The Initial Assessment Application can be found here.
You can find more information about the company documents which we can accept here.
Due to a high volume of applications, processing time for new applicants is currently about 2 weeks. Applications submitted incompletely or that require further information may take longer.
Step Two: Registration and Payment
If the assessment is successful, we will register you with our Tier 5 Program, and *invoice you for the appropriate fee, which will consist of two parts: The Registration Fee and the Sponsorship Fee.
New Clients: £600.00 + VAT
Returning Clients: £150.00 + VAT
Extending Clients £300.00 + VAT
Express Route: (2 working days processing time) £100.00/Month of Sponsorship + VAT
Standard Route: (5 working days processing time) £750.00 + VAT for 12-month sponsorships only.
So for example, if you are a New Client, who would like Express Sponsorship, you will pay £1,800 + VAT. If you are a Returning Client, who would like Standard Sponsorship, you will pay £900 + VAT.
Please also **fill and submit a Migrant Care Letter and Client Care Letter, in order to complete this step. When we deem your case eligible, we will send you the Care Letters via email.
*Please note that all invoices will be issued to employers, and should be paid by employers. We do not accept payment from candidates.
**Immigration Advisors may fill any and all forms, but Care Letters must be signed by the employing organisation and the migrant themselves.
Issuance of Sponsorship and Visa Application Assistance
Once payment is received by our finance department, we will issue your Certificate of Sponsorship according to the route you have chosen above and will be available to advise on your visa application.
