UK Immigration To Introduce Premium Service For Tier 4 Sponsors

The chief executive of the UK Border Agency (UKBA) has announced that he intends to establish a premium service for Tier 4 sponsors. He says that the service will cost £8,000 a year and will give UK universities who sign up a better service.
Rob Whiteman said that the new service would give Tier 4 sponsors 'a range of benefits' including
• Access to a named account manager
• Priority consideration of post-licence casework,
• Monthly information reports on certificate allocations
• Access to student eligibility checks.

The Tier 4 premium service is expected to be available from July 2013.

New guidance for Tier 4 sponsors

The UKBA has also issued new guidance for Tier 4 sponsors. It was issued on 4th March 2013. The guidance makes it clear that 'there are no substantive changes to your duties as a sponsor' compared to the previous guidance.
One minor change has been made to the rules to allow students at a musical conservatoire to remain in the UK on a Tier 4 visa for over five years.
