The UK Border Agency has announced the Tier 2 of the new points based immigration system, which comes into effect on the 27th November 2008. On 6th May 2008, the new UK Border Agency published the statement of intent for Tier 2 of the new points based immigration system, which comes into effect on the 27th November 2008. Tier 2 are skilled workers holding job offers from UK employers, and in order for us to bring migrants in through Tier 2 we need to become a Sponsor organisation. As a Sponsor organisation we will be able to provide a migrant with a certificate of sponsorship to enable him/her to apply for a visa to enter the UK. We have had our application to become a Sponsor agreed by the UK Border Agency. Our license is valid for 4 years and we will therefore be able to issue certificates of sponsorship under Tier 2 from the launch date of the new Scheme.
