Am I eligible for a UK Work Permit in London?

Your eligibility will depend on your individual circumstances. You must speak to your employer and consult one of our immigration experts about which visa category is the most appropriate for you.

What if I want to employ migrant workers in my London based company?

If you are an employer and are looking to legally employ migrant talent from outside the EEA and Switzerland, you will need to ensure that you have a Sponsorship Licence.

Depending on the type of worker you are looking to employ, and which Tier of Visa they are registered under, the process for obtaining this licence will vary.
