27 November 2020 #Immigration
The Sponsorship Management System (SMS) is a key part of a Sponsor Licence. The system is undergoing an essential upgrade in preparation for the new immigration system that is to commence from 1 December 2020.
SMS will be unavailable from 7PM today (27 November 2020) until 9AM on Tuesday, 1 December 2020. The SMS message board has also confirmed that all outstanding Restricted Certificate of Sponsorship (RCoS) decisions made prior to this upgrade will be decided before Tuesday.
Any RCoS with an outstanding request for further information, where the information has not been provided, will be rejected.
Sponsors will be able to apply under the new system for ‘defined’ and ‘undefined’ CoS from 1 December 2020.
