  • £945 in savings – this is to prove you can support yourself and you must have had this in your bank account for 90 days before you apply.

(You don’t need to have £945 in savings if your sponsor is fully approved (‘A-rated) and they can certify that they’ll support and accommodate you for the first month you’re employed – check your sponsor’s rating.)

(Your certificate of sponsorship is valid for 3 months from the date it’s assigned to you.)
