UK businesses must have a sponsor licence to employ workers who do not have immigration permission to reside and work in the UK.
Following a successful application, UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) grants a sponsor licence to a business, who is then permitted to employ migrant workers not already holding a visa allowing them to work in the UK.
