Tier 2 and 5 Sponsorship Duties Factsheet

Organisations that hold a Tier 2 and/or Tier 5 sponsor licence must comply with various duties prescribed by the UKVI to ensure that they do not risk this being downgraded, suspended or revoked. In relation to sponsored employees, these duties end when either:

  • A report is made to UKVI that the sponsorship has been terminated;
  • The sponsored employee leaves the UK and their leave lapses;
  • The sponsored employee is granted leave with another sponsor; or
  • The sponsored employee is granted leave in a category not requiring sponsorship.

A sponsor’s duties under Tier 2 fall in to the four categories set out below.
