Valid defined certificate of sponsorship applications made by skilled worker sponsors are no longer being decided on a daily basis due to a system issue. Valid applications will now be decided on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays until further notice.

You must apply for a defined certificate of sponsorship if you want to recruit a migrant under the Skilled Worker route who will be applying for leave to enter the UK from overseas. The sponsorship management system guide to submitting applications is available here.
