Sponsor Licence Application
The Advantages Of Having A Tier 2 Sponsor Licence
A Tier 2 Sponsor Licence allows you to employ Non-EU migrant workers. Once an organisation acquires a Sponsor Licence, they become registered with the Home Office as a sponsor, and can begin to bring in skilled Non-EU employees.
For many companies, this is essential to the successful operation and growth of their business. However, applying for and receiving a Sponsor Licence is a challenging process, and can be fraught with obstacles.
At A Y & J Solicitors,we have extensive experience helping companies acquire and sustain their Tier 2 Sponsor Licences
