    Tier 2 Sponsorship capabilities
    Tier 2 Sponsorship experiences
    • Healys regularly assists clients in applying for and maintaining sponsor licences, providing training to staff in relation to sponsor duties and responsibilities, undertaking compliance audits of company systems and processes and assisting clients in the submission of necessary reports and updates to the Home Office. We have successfully challenged Home Office decisions to suspend sponsor licences and civil penalty fines and been able to have licences reinstated. We currently work for a specialist care home in relation to its Tier 2 licence and have successfully assisted the sponsor in urgently being allocated additional certificates of sponsorship (following an initial Home Office refusal of a request submitted by the sponsor without legal representation) to enable it to recruit specialist nurses trained in nursing those with neurological injury/damage/disease; a current UK shortage occupation.
    • We currently provide a bespoke service to a particular investor who, following a successful switch from Tier 2 (General) to Tier 1 (Investor) status, wants follow up ad hoc advice regarding the maintenance of her Tier 1 (Investor) status and quarterly review of her managed portfolio, to give her peace of mind that her status is being looked after throughout so as to put her in the best position to successfully extend her visa on its expiry.
    • Acted for a large corporation in the Middle East in facilitating the swift transfer of their Vice president from their head office to their London office. This involved obtaining the relevant sponsor license, completing a Tier 2 application, and liaising with both the UK Border Agency and the applicant’s home country Visa service in order to successfully expedite the process.
