Employers: Tier 2 certificates of sponsorship allocations for 2012/13

20 April 2012

We are currently experiencing high volumes of requests from sponsors who have applied to renew their allocation of Certificates of Sponsorship (CoS) for 2012-13. Processing time for requests has increased and you may experience a short delay in receiving your new allocation. We are working to keep delays to a minimum. Our aim is to have the majority of allocation requests, submitted before 6 April 2012, concluded by Friday 4 May 2012.

If you are currently sponsoring an overseas worker whose leave to remain expires on or before 4 May ... 2012 and who needs a CoS to apply to extend their leave, please email the details of the sponsored worker to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

We will process all other applications for CoS in date order.

We apologise for any inconvenience the delays may cause you.
