WE HAVE ANSWERS.
A Sponsor License allows you to employ migrants who does not have the right to work in the UK. You must submit an application for your Sponsor License to the Home Office and get an approval before being able to employ overseas workers.
Most applications are dealt with in less than 8 weeks. UKVI may need to visit your business.
You may be able to pay an extra £500 to get a decision within 10 working days. This service is limited to a small number of applications every working day. Faster decisions are allocated in the order that requests arrive (first come, first served).
You’ll be told how to ask for a faster decision after you apply.
You must assign a valid Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) to the worker so they can make a successful immigration application. You will have to pay a fee to assign a CoS and (in the case of Skilled Workers and Senior or Specialist workers), pay the Immigration Skills Charge.
You will need to sponsor any overseas worker you wish to employ if they are not a ‘settled worker’ or do not otherwise have the appropriate immigration permission to work for you in the UK.
This can cover individuals who are currently in the UK and on a Student Visa who wants to work full-time. Individuals who are outside of the UK with no right to stay or work in the UK.
You are responsible for checking that your sponsored workers carry out the role for which they are being sponsored and for monitoring their attendance. You must tell us if they don’t turn up for work, are absent without permission, or there are significant changes to their employment or to your organisation.
You must also keep records for each worker you sponsor – see Appendix D. This includes evidence of any recruitment activity you have undertaken to fill the role, even if you were not required to carry out a formal resident labour market test.

“Don’t let work shortage be a struggle. There’s still an option out there. We were very anxious about trying new things because we’ve been on other platforms, but for us, I will definitely recommend the support of IANS to get your team where it should be.”
"For two years, I tried using different job boards but no results. In just 24 hours, IANS gave me a long list of carers. It was amazing. I wasn’t expecting it to be so quick and to see results straightaway.”
“The thing we liked the most about IANS is the speed of response. Any questions or issues we raised, we received a response in as little as 10 minutes. We would discuss about the candidates coming over to the UK and they would setup group chats so we could find accommodation. The support was extended not just to us, but to the applicants, too. ”
“When you don’t have staff and you have clients, it just won’t work. They go hand in hand. With IANS, I can now develop the business and take it to new heights. I am confident that I can go to the commissioners now and say I want the job. I want the contracts because I have the staff now.”
