Revised Codes of Practice for Sponsored Skilled Workers

Posted: 5th March 2011

Passport StampsThe UK Border Agency (UKBA) has published the annual update to the codes of practice for sponsored skilled workers.
If an employer wants to sponsor a migrant worker from outside Europe under Tier 2 or Tier 5 of the points-based system of immigration, they must use the codes of practice to:
  • check the skill level and appropriate pay for that job; and
  • find out where the job must be advertised in the UK before it can be offered to a migrant worker.
Employers must check the latest version of the codes of practice before issuing a certificate of sponsorship.
The revised codes of practice can be found on the UKBA website.
