Sponsor Licence Revocations

Sponsor Licence Revocations:

In the event that UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) determines that you have significantly failed to fulfill your sponsor duties or have ceased operations in the UK, your sponsor licence will be revoked.

Sponsor Licence Revocation:

If your sponsor licence is revoked, it will have consequences for the migrants you sponsor. Their leave will be curtailed, and they will be given a period of 60 calendar days to secure alternative sponsorship or leave the UK. If their visa has less than 60 days remaining, it will not be curtailed, but they must still find alternative sponsorship or depart the UK before its expiry.

Reasons for sponsor licence revocation may include providing false information during the Sponsor Licence Application, employing a migrant in a role that does not meet the required skill level, or utilizing a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) to fill a vacancy different from the one specified on the assigned CoS. Commonly, failures in human resource policies lead to revocation.

It is important to note that there is no right of appeal against a decision to revoke a sponsor licence. Additionally, you will not be eligible to apply for a new sponsor licence until the end of the appropriate cooling-off period, which commences from the date of licence revocation.

Additional Information on Sponsor Licence Revocations:

It is important to note the following details regarding sponsor licence revocations:

No Right of Appeal: There is no right of appeal available for a decision to revoke a sponsor licence. However, our team of immigration barristers can assess the viability of pursuing a Judicial Review of the revocation decision and provide representation in Judicial Review proceedings, if deemed appropriate.

Fresh Sponsor Licence Application: Following the cooling off period, it is possible to submit a new Sponsor Licence Application. However, this application must specifically address the reasons that led to the revocation of your previous licence.
