I'm under tier 4 visa which is going to be expired in a weeks time. By boss wanted to sponsor me but waiting for the application result. Would you recommended as potential steps to get the cos before my visa expired? Thanks

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your question.

Your sponsor should apply for the CoS as soon as possible in order for you to make the application before your visa expires. Your sponsor will not be able to request the CoS allocation until they have the licence and subsequently, they will not be able to generate the CoS until they have the allocation. The Tier 2 application should be made within 3 months of generating the CoS.

Our business immigration solicitors will contact you shortly.
