Employers: Changes to the highly trusted sponsor application process

07 June 2013

From 10 June 2013 we will no longer accept paper applications or cheque payments for highly trusted sponsor (HTS) status.

This includes renewal applications from sponsors who already hold HTS status.

From 1 July you should apply online via the sponsorship management system (SMS).

Tier 4 sponsors were notified of this change on 31 May 2013, while sponsors affected by transitional arrangements have been contacted separately.

For more information about transitional arrangements or the new application process email Sponsorship PBS enquiries.
