I Want to Hire an Overseas National. Can your Immigration Lawyers in Cubitt Town Help?
If you wish to hire an overseas national, there are a number of requirements and duties which you must fulfil. Our Cubitt Town immigration lawyers can help you with the full process.
The first thing which you will need to do is apply for a sponsorship licence. As part of the application process, you will need to assign people within your company to fill certain roles in the Sponsorship Management System (SMS).
You will need to appoint the following roles:
- Authorising officer. They will be responsible for actions of members of staff who use the SMS
- Key contact. This person will be the main point of contact with United Kingdom Visas and Immigration
- Level 1 user. They will be responsible for the daily management of the licence through the SMS
If your sponsorship licence is accepted, you can then begin the process of assigning certificates of sponsorship to your prospective employees. They will need their unique certificate of sponsorship number when they apply for their work visa.

The main requirements for the Spouse Visa are as follows:
- Must be aged 18 or over
- Must be in a marriage/civil partnership which is recognised in UK law. (You will have to provide a certificate in your portfolio of evidence)
- Must meet the ‘genuine relationship’ requirement
- Must have a combined annual income of at least £18,600. If you have any dependents, this fee increases by £3,800 for your first dependent and a further £2,400 for each additional dependent
- Must have suitable accommodation to live in in the UK
- Must be able to understand and communicate in English to a certain level
The Spouse Visa is valid for 33 months if applied for from outside the UK and 30 months if applied for inside the UK. You can also apply for a Spouse Visa extension before your Spouse Visa expires.

If you want to hire an immigration solicitor, it is imperative that you only place your trust in reputable immigration law firms.

Anyone offering professional immigration legal advice and assistance must hold the OISC accreditation (or a higher qualification).

If you are a non-EEA national, you will need to apply for a visa to visit the UK, even if you only plan to stay for a short period of time.
If you want to visit London as a tourist or to visit family and friends, the Standard Visitor Visa is the ideal option. This visa is valid for six months and enables you to travel throughout the United Kingdom.
Bear in mind that if you want to stay in the UK longer than six months, you will need to apply for another form of immigration permission. The Standard Visitor Visa cannot be extended.
