This page explains the help and support available to employers and education providers who sponsor or want to sponsor migrant workers and students under the points-based system.
The role of the sponsor is crucial to the success of the points-based system, and we want to be as supportive as possible to sponsors.
Our sponsorship and employers' helpline connects you to our dedicated contact centre for employers and education providers. It can provide advice and answer your questions about all aspects of sponsorship.
We have designed the sponsor licence application process to be straightforward and transparent, and our Getting started tools should help you through the process. If you want to get further assurance on your organisation's readiness to apply for a licence, we have compiled a list of third-party advisers who we have assessed as giving satisfactory advice to prospective sponsors.
