- Have a certificate of sponsorship reference number from your UK sponsor.
- Have enough funds to support yourself in the UK (usually at least £1,270, unless exempt)
- Be at least 18 years old when you apply.
Please contact us for an initial assessment to determine your eligibility and discuss the available options.
A certificate of sponsorship is a unique reference number that holds information about your job and personal details. It is not a physical document, but rather an electronic reference number. Your UK sponsor will provide you with the certificate of sponsorship, which is valid for three months from the date it is assigned to you.
To support yourself in the UK, you must have at least £1,270 in your bank account for 28 consecutive days. If you have been in the UK with a valid visa for 12 months or more, or if your employer can cover your costs for the first month (up to £1,270), you may be exempt from providing proof of funds. Your partner and children must also prove that they can support themselves during their stay in the UK.
- Certificate of a sponsorship reference number
- Valid passport or another identification document
- Evidence of sufficient personal savings to support yourself in the UK (unless exempt)
- Proof of relationship with partner or children (if applicable)
- TB test results (if applicable)
