Can Tier 2 Migrants Work After Sponsorship Licence Revocation?

There is always an ambiguity whether tier 2 migrants can continue working with their sponsored employer after revocation of their licence.

Now the position is clear, Home office sponsorship compliance unit have now confirmed in an email correspondence that sponsored employees can continue working till their leave to remain is curtailed.

Normally Home Office will take some time to curtail the leave and grant 60 days period to establish their leave. This is a big relief for employers who got confused with their employees right to work status after their licence got revoked and employees to find a prospective new employer.

However it’s always advisable to contact the curtailment team to update your current correspondence address. Otherwise there is a high risk of sending your curtailment letter to the last known address.
