south africans offered uk sponsorship

When it comes to immigrating to the UK, there are various types of sponsorship available to South Africans. Understanding these options is crucial in determining the best course of action for your visa application.

One option is to have a friend or family member in the UK sponsor your visa. This is known as a “Family” or “Friends” sponsorship. However, this option may not be suitable for those looking to work in the UK as it typically only covers short term visits.

Another option is to have an employer in the UK sponsor your work visa. This is known as a “Employer Sponsorship” and is typically the most common route for those seeking to work in the UK.

If you are currently searching for a job in the UK, you may also be eligible for a “UK visitor visa” which allows you to enter the UK for a short period of time to look for employment. The complication, should you secure Skilled Worker visa sponsorship, is that you would be expected to return to SA to change your visa status – UK visitor visas do not allow for “in-country” change of intent.
