    How Newcastle Immigration Lawyers Can Help You Apply

    At Newcastle Immigration Lawyers, we can help you with every stage of the application process. We can help you navigate the online application system, and to gather the necessary documents, including:

    • Valid passport
    • Certificate of sponsorship from a licenced UK employer. You will need to include the reference number from your certificate of sponsorship as part of your application
    • Proof of sufficient proficiency in the English language
    • Your employer’s name and sponsor licence number (which you can find on your certificate of sponsorship)
    • The details of your role, including the job title, the occupation code for your job, and proof that you satisfy the minimum salary threshold

    We can also help identify if any additional documents will likely be required based on your specific circumstances.

    If your application is successful, we can help explain what this means for you and what your rights are once you enter the UK.

    Why Use a Lawyer To Help You With The Skilled Worker Visa / Sponsor License

    The UK is an appealing location for those looking to pursue professional opportunities overseas. However, following post-Brexit changes to UK immigration rules, the process of applying for a UK visa involves new steps for many applicants and can often be very confusing. Using a lawyer to help with your visa application makes the process as smooth as possible, as you are guided through the new steps by an experienced legal expert.

    If you are a company looking to receive a sponsor licence in order to sponsor employees from overseas, hiring a lawyer is worth considering for you also. Your lawyer can help you check your eligibility for licenced status, navigate the licence application process, and understand which employees you are eligible to sponsor if your licence application is successful.

    Whether you are applying for a Skilled Worker visa or a sponsor licence, our lawyers at Newcastle Immigration Lawyers can help. Contact us today on 0191 303 8965 to learn more.
