How do I sponsor a migrant?

Your sponsorship duties

This section explains your sponsorship duties under the points-based system, including your duties under different tiers, and your duties of recordkeeping, reporting and compliance.

As a sponsor, you must meet certain duties to make sure immigration controls remain effective. The aims of these duties are to:

  • prevent abuse of assessment procedures;
  • capture any patterns of migrant behaviour early which cause concern;
  • address possible weaknesses in your processes which cause those patterns; and
  • monitor compliance with immigration rules.

If you have any queries about your sponsorship duties, you should raise them with our visiting officers who provide advice and act as a general point of contact.

You can use the employer checking service which is a developing service that offers employers an opportunity to check the status of individuals to work in the United Kingdom.
