OTS Success In Sponsorship Licence Application For International Bank Based In London
Solicitor – Teni Shahiean – Partner and co-founder of OTS Solicitors
Our client was an international bank based in London who required a Sponsor Licence to employ a staff member working in an overseas branch of the organisation. To gain entry into the UK, the employee had to apply for a Tier 2 (Intra-Company Transfer) Visa.
How we helped
Once she established that it was, she made the application for the Sponsor Licence. Because she partnered closely with the bank’s HR team, she was able to advise on all the supporting documentation that UK Visas & Immigration would require to approve the application quickly.
The process was smooth and efficient, with the Sponsor Licence being granted in under four weeks.
Teni then organised a Certificate of Sponsorship for the employee who would be applying for the Tier 2 (Intra-Company Transfer) Visa. This was obtained within two weeks because of her in-depth understanding of the process and what is required to ensure applications for a Certificate of Sponsorship are submitted correctly the first time so no unnecessary delays occur.
Follow up support
Teni and her team provided the bank’s HR and Compliance Officer with the knowledge they require to meet their ongoing regulatory obligations under the Sponsor Licence regime. They continue to be on hand to offer advice and training as and when required.
