Visa Sponsorship

Information on applying for visa sponsorship now available


Information about applying for a visa sponsorship licence is now available on the GP Workforce Scheme Delivery Hub.

This includes the slide pack used by the Home Office for the GP visa sponsorship webinar we hosted in June, along with some questions and answers that were raised at the webinar. Both contain useful information for people who were not able to attend.

Gaining the right to be a UK visa sponsoring practice has many advantages and could form an important part of your general practice workforce planning. One in three newly qualified GPs this year will be international medical graduates and numbers will increase in years to come. These candidates have spent three years training in England as part of the HEE programme and have excellent language skills and knowledge about the NHS.
