Employer Guidance for the UK Points-based immigration system

The UK points-based immigration system prioritises skills and talent over where a person comes from. The system provides flexible arrangements for UK employers to recruit skilled workers from around the world through a number of different immigration routes.

Anyone coming to the UK to work will need to apply for permission in advance except Irish citizens or EU citizens eligible for status under the EU Settlement Scheme.

You must be a licensed sponsor to hire most eligible employees from outside the UK. This does not apply to Irish citizens.

The Home Office has developed a suite of digital and print assets with information to help employers prepare.

This pack outlines our key messages and provides communication products for use on channels including social media, email updates and e-newsletters.
