Revocation of Sponsor License

Sponsorship license is generally granted for a period of four years subject to the condition that the sponsor continues to fully comply with the sponsorship duties and takes appropriate actions as required. The Home Office reserve a right to pay a surprise visit to any employer having sponsorship license to ensure that the sponsor is fully compliant with the rules and regulations of the license.

Having a sponsorship license therefore is not the end of the process, it is in fact beginning of commitment of compliance of all the rules and procedures that the sponsor makes to the Home Office. The sponsors in fact share the burden of immigration control with the Home office and is penalized by suspension and or revocation if it is found that the sponsor has failed to comply with the duties that they have been entrusted to.

The Home Office has provided full details of all aspects of the duties and responsibilities of the sponsor and failure to adhere even to a single duty may lead to suspension and later revocation of the sponsorship license.

The Revocation of Sponsorship License

The home office may revoke the sponsorship license with immediate effect if it is found that the sponsor is in serious breach of the sponsorship duties that has compromised effective immigration control. In most cases, however the sponsor is given 20 working days to make appropriate representations in response to the suspension of the sponsorship license.

The effect of the revocation of the sponsorship license is quite serious as all the point based migrants working for the sponsor could not continue working for their employer and the home office curtails their leave to remain to expire in 60 days’ time.

The employees are in fact given the opportunity to look for another sponsor and make fresh application on the basis of a new Certificate of Sponsorship and obtain new leave to remain under the relevant point based system.

It is extremely crucial to seek professional advice and services to deal with the revocation of the sponsorship license as the only way to challenge the refusal is to lodge Judicial Review proceedings in the High Court. We have vast experience in handling such matters and are rightly place to represent our clients in the High Court.
