Skilled worker + Sponsor licence

Age: 35
Visa type: Skilled worker+ Sponsor licence

Challenge: No Sponsor licence, deadline, sponsoring company underwent re-branding.

The client was inside the UK on a PBS-dependant visa as a dependant partner, however unfortunately due to difficult relationship with his spouse they decided to separate.

As their relationship was about to break down permanently, he had to look for other options to be able to stay in the UK.

He works as a Supply Chain Manager for the notable Group of Companies.
We offered him a Skilled worker visa but later found out that his company does not have a Sponsor license which challenged our case even more.

It later came to our attention that the Sponsoring company had underwent a re-branding exercise to align its name with new parent company.

As a result of change in direct ownership we had to provide additional documents for not causing any doubt to the Home Office and successfully obtain the Sponsor licence for our client’s employer.
The licence was granted within our expected timeframe and our client was then able to successfully apply for Skilled worker visa and stay in the UK.
