Brexit is the biggest change to immigration law in a generation...

Brexit is the biggest change to immigration law in a generation. Post-Brexit, the new Skilled Worker visa will be the main route of entry for skilled workers who have a job from an approved sponsor. This will apply to EU and non-EU nationals alike (aside from EU nationals who have obtained settled/ pre-settled status, or Irish nationals who are exempt). Although full details have yet to be published, it is clear that in order to access the scheme, employers will need to register with UK Visas and Immigration to become licensed sponsors. Without a licence, your business may not be able to recruit non-UK nationals after 31 December 2020. Getting a sponsor licence before 1 January 2021, and getting the application right first time, is business critical.

Brabners’ Business Immigration team has a wealth of experience supporting clients with sponsor licence applications and providing employers with the tools and knowledge they need to meet their compliance obligations. We advise on the following for a fixed fee:

  • Suitability requirements and standards to ensure your business meets the compliance standards imposed by UK Visas and Immigration.
  • Your compliance obligations as a sponsor, for example, in relation to recordkeeping and reporting.
  • The structure of your sponsor licence, key personnel and positions of responsibility.
  • Completing the online application form.
  • Preparing appropriate supporting documents regarding your licence application.
  • A detailed covering letter that accompanies your submission to meet the Tier specific requirements.

Failure to get it right will have significant implications on your recruitment strategy and business planning so please don’t delay and get in touch with Brabners’ Business Immigration team today.
