To get a licence, you cannot have:
- unspent criminal convictions for immigration offences or certain other crimes, such as fraud or money laundering
- any history of failing to carry out your sponsorship duties
You’ll need appropriate systems in place to monitor sponsored employees.
UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) will review your application form and supporting documents. They may visit your business to make sure you’re trustworthy and capable of carrying out your duties.
