In the UK Tier 2 Visa allocation meeting, held on 11th September 2017, the Certificates of Sponsorship, available for issuing, in October 2017 were 1,879.
The department for UK Visas and Immigration said in its September Report that the figures were corrected as of 15th Sep 2017.
An employer possessing UK Tier 2 Visa license has to apply for Sponsorship Certificates for immigrants to be employed. Under the current immigration system, unused UK Tier 2 Certificates of Sponsorship, which were granted to employ people currently based out of the UK, are subject to reclamation after three months. This increases their availability.
All valid applications submitted on or before 5th September, were successful when the score was 21 points.
