Watch our UK immigration specialists Monica Atwal and Rebecca Hone, as they explain the main changes to the UK’s sponsorship system following the overhaul of the points-based system in January 2021 and following the closure of the EU Settlement Scheme on 30 June 2021.
UK employers may either apply for a Worker or Temporary Worker sponsor licence, or both, depending on the employment needs of their business. Existing Tier 2 (General) and Tier 2 (ICT) sponsors have automatically been granted with new licences under the new system.
Skilled Worker visas are relevant for both overseas and in-country new hires who UK businesses intend to employ on a long-term basis. Intra-Company visas are for existing employees of connected overseas entities whose skilled work is required in the UK.
The way that UK employers are required to conduct right to work checks has been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and Brexit, and the prescribed method depends on varying factors, which they have detailed in this webinar.
They have also covered a few of the Home Office immigration concessions enacted in response to the Covid-19 travel restrictions implemented on a global scale.
