Redefined criteria for certificate of sponsorship- Tier 2 Scheme

01 November 2010

The UK Border Agency has today published new criteria which will be applied to Tier 2 (General) sponsors' requests for additional certificates of sponsorship.

The criteria have been refined to give sponsors greater certainty, by ensuring all requests will be approved if they relate to an extension for a Work Permit holder or Tier 2 (General) worker already employed by a sponsor.

Requests for additional certificates of sponsorship are considered by a panel of UK Border Agency managers, who normally meet on the first working day of each month. Because of the introduction of the refined criteria, the November panel will be delayed until 12 November.

The UK Border Agency will consider urgent cases outside the monthly panel for those sponsors whose applications cannot wait until 12 November.
