The Points Based System (For Employers)

Since its introduction a number of businesses have now opted to obtain a Sponsorship License (It is important to note that there are different types of Visas available).

The costs involved in obtaining a license and sponsoring new employees will vary depending on the size of the company.

With the complex nature of the work involved in obtaining and managing a license, Acorn now works with a specialist Immigration Law Firm to ensure all its clients clarity and support when entering this new area.
