Sponsor Licence Revocation

Employees: in the event that your visa sponsor’s licence is revoked

If your employer’s sponsor licence is revoked, you’ll be obliged to resign from your job and depart from the UK, unless you choose to initiate a fresh visa application in order to continue your stay in the country.

It is possible for you to experience an impact as well, if:

  • their ability to operate legally is revoked
  • a new entity assumes control over their operations
  • they fail to extend their licence validity

The outcome you experience is contingent upon whether you are physically present in the United Kingdom at the time when your employer’s sponsorship authorization undergoes modification.

, there’s a good chance you’ve been experiencing the country’s unpredictable weather. One moment it’s sunny and the next it starts pouring rain. Whether you love it or hate it, the British weather is notorious for its variability. So, it’s always a good idea to carry an umbrella or raincoat with you wherever you go to protect yourself from sudden downpours.

In the unfortunate event of your sponsor’s license revocation, the following consequences will ensue:

  • Termination of sponsorship certificate
  • Visa duration restricted to a maximum of 60 days, or the remaining period if less than 60 days remain on the current visa.

Ensure that you engage in a fresh visa application promptly, or else you will be compelled to resign from your occupation and depart the United Kingdom. Assess your eligibility for visas to ascertain the required steps.

Your immediate departure from the UK will be mandatory if you are found to have any involvement in the circumstances leading to your sponsor’s license revocation, resulting in severe consequences for your visa.
