Reviews from White Rose Visas' Sponsor Licence clients

Sennep: Sponsor Licence

Excellent service provided throughout the entire process. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Snow: Sponsor Licence

It has been so delightful working with you. I can't thank you enough for all the effort you made to help us get this certificate, which probably wouldn't have happened without you.

How can White Rose Visas help you?

In these situations, we thoroughly check in advance whether your systems will meet Home Office criteria, provide you with our written guide to compliance visits, and offer individual coaching on questions that will be asked during the visit.

The first year of the Premium Support Package is included for free to all our Sponsor Licence clients.
