Home Office Compliance Visits & Emergency Immigration Support

Home Office compliance visits

Compliance visits by the Home Office are a routine part of maintaining your sponsor licence. These visits aim to ensure that sponsors are adhering to the immigration rules and requirements. During a compliance visit, Home Office officials may assess various aspects of your operations, including record-keeping, compliance with reporting duties, and the employment of sponsored migrants.

At Freeths, we recognise that compliance visits can be stressful and time-consuming. Our experienced team can assist you throughout the process, helping you prepare for the visit, ensuring that your records are accurate and up-to-date, and guiding you on how to effectively respond to any queries from the Home Office officials. Our goal is to minimise any potential disruption to your business and provide you with peace of mind.

Emergency Immigration Support

In addition to compliance visits, unexpected immigration issues can arise at any time, requiring immediate attention. Our emergency immigration support services are designed to help you navigate through critical situations swiftly and effectively. Whether you encounter a compliance concern, a sponsorship issue, or face the risk of losing your licence, our dedicated team is available to assist you promptly.

Our emergency immigration support includes:

  1. Immediate legal advice: We provide urgent legal advice tailored to your specific situation. Our experienced immigration experts will assess the issue at hand and guide you through the necessary steps to resolve it swiftly.
  2. Emergency licence compliance: If you are facing compliance issues or have received a notice from the Home Office, we will work closely with you to develop a strategy to rectify the situation promptly. Our aim is to mitigate any potential penalties and minimise the impact on your business.
  3. Sponsorship issues: If you encounter difficulties with sponsored migrants, such as a withdrawal of sponsorship, a revoked visa, or a potential breach of immigration rules, we will provide you with guidance on the best course of action to protect your interests and maintain your sponsor licence.
  4. Licence suspension or revocation: In the unfortunate event that your sponsor licence is at risk of suspension or revocation, our team will work diligently to challenge the decision and present a robust case on your behalf. We will represent you in any legal proceedings, ensuring that your rights are protected and we will support you with the reinstatement of your licence.
