UK Certificate of Sponsorship for Nurses trained outside the UK (Tier 2)

Posted

Hi guys. Kindly share your waiting time of your COS from the day you receive your DL.

I have been waiting for almost a month now, yet I still don't have my COS. I am also done with my medical exams. Is this natural/okay?

How long/ what is the time range for COS?

Thanks in advance guys! :)

Hey!

Certificates of sponsorship are only awarded once a month on the 11th. Your employer must send the completed application to the home office department that awards the COS's by the 5th of the month to be looked at on the 11th. Your employer will find out the result within 5 business days after that. Make sure you contact your employer for the decision outcome.

Mine me was sent to home office by my employer the 5th of august and was looked at on the 11th. I got the results on the 18th of august. If your employer missed the deadline of the 5th, your application won't be assessed until the 11th of the next month unfortunately.

If if you've been waiting over a month, call your employer and ask if they've heard anything.

Hi. Thanks a lot! Your response shed a light on my concern and it is very informative.

I have asked my agency about it and they said that they are still waiting for my employer's feedback. I don't know the status whether my employer has or has not applied my COS yet..

I am getting worried because I am already finished with all of the medical tests that expire in due time. Lol but I am hoping that my COS will come anytime soon. : p

Again, thank you for your reply phoenixblaise : )

Thankfully your COS has no bearing on your decision letter. If the Nmc has all of the documents, you are in the assessment cue and they shouldn't need updated medical etc unless they find something else to question and you need to be assessed all over again, if that were the case though, you'll get an email from them. I was in the assessment cause aug 16 and got my DL Sept 23.
