A Certificate of sponsorship (CoS) is an electronic record generated on the Sponsor Management System (SMS). Each certificate has its own number which an applicant can use to apply for a visa.

The employer is required to request a CoS from the Home Office through the SMS, on approval it can be assigned to a migrant worker and used in the entry clearance applications.

Defined CoS

These certificates are required for migrants based outside the UK and applying for entry clearance as skilled worker. Earlier this was known as the Restricted CoS and the sponsors were required to apply for this by the 5th of each month and a decision on the same would be received by 11th of the same month.

Undefined CoS

These certificates are for Skilled Workers applying from inside the UK, and applicants on all other visas.

The annual allocation of undefined CoS runs from 6 April to 5 April each year.

If you are a UK employer and want to apply for CoS you can contact our UK visa experts on:
