You might need a sponsor license to employ someone from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland to work for you in the UK.
This includes unpaid work, like running a charity.
Sponsoring someone doesn’t guarantee that they’ll be allowed to come to or stay in the UK.
How to get a sponsor license
- Check your business is eligible.
- Choose the type of license you want to apply for – this will depend on what type of worker you want to sponsor.
- Decide who will manage sponsorship within your business.
- Apply online and pay the fee.
UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) may visit your business to check it’s suitable.
After you apply
You’ll be given a license rating if your application is successful.
Your licence will be valid for 4 years. You may lose your licence if you don’t meet your responsibilities as a sponsor.
