1, 879 Sponsorship Certificates for Tier 2 UK visas are available in October subsequent to the latest meeting for the allocation of Tier 2 UK visas. These figures were revealed by the data of UK Immigration and Visas.
The UK Immigration and Visas department announced in its report for September stating that its statistics were updated as of September 15, 2017.
A UK employer who possesses the sponsorship license for Tier 2 visas must apply for sponsorship certificates if they intend to recruit overseas workers. As per the existing immigration regime in the UK the limited unutilized Tier 2 sponsorship certificates offered to hire overseas workers can be claimed again after 90 days. This results in the enhanced availability of limited sponsorship certificates for Tier 2 visas, as quoted by the Workpermit.
The meeting for September allocation for Sponsorship Certificates for Tier 2 UK visas was held in the second week of the month. All applications that secured at least 21 or more points and that were lodged by the first week of September were successful.
