Workers and Temporary Workers: guidance for sponsors
You should read all parts of the guidance to ensure you understand your duties and responsibilities as a licensed sponsor.
If you are new to sponsorship, you may find it helpful to read the relevant route-specific guidance first.
You do not need to sponsor an EEA or Swiss national, or their eligible family members, if they arrive in the UK before 11pm on 31 December 2020, provided they apply for status on the EU Settlement Scheme by 30 June 2021 and that application is granted. With limited exceptions, you do not need to sponsor Irish citizens.
