The UKBA announces changes in dealing with sponsor requests

August 1, 2012 | News

Beginning 30 July 2012, Sponsors will now be able to track the progress and results of their sponsor requests by logging into the Sponsorship Management System (SMS). This could potentially mean that in certain cases Sponsors will no longer be notified by email or letter when requests to change sponsor details have been approved. Sponsors will be able to use the ‘view recent and outstanding requests’ and ‘view user list’ features on the SMS to monitor the status of their requests.

Therefore, it is important that Sponsors check their SMS regularly if they have recently made a sponsor request rather than waiting for a notification from the UK Border Agency.

Hudson McKenzie as Legal Representatives are able to keep track of these requests for their clients. For more information on the above, please contact the Global Mobility professional you deal with at the firm or send an email to one of our UK Immigration Lawyers at londoninfo@hudsonmckenzie.com.
