Updated immigration guides for international recruitment

Group of hospital staff

The new points-based immigration system, and the various visa routes that enable skilled overseas professionals to enter the UK, can be confusing and appear a little daunting. 

To help you better understand the complexities of immigration rules, we have updated our suite of quick guides.

The guides detail:

  • how to become a sponsor
  • how to apply for a defined or undefined certificate of sponsorship (CoS)
  • details on the health and care visa
  • which route to use for a certain profession.

Our dedicated international recruitment web pages are available for further information.
