This category is for foreigners who have been offered a skilled job UK to fill a gap in the workforce that cannot be filled by a settled worker in the UK. South Africans must have to a job offer from a UK company that is a licensed sponsor company, registered with the UK Border Agency, which allows them to sponsor non-Europeans nationals like South Africans. This licensed sponsor company will then assign you with a certificate of sponsorship and only once you have this are you able to apply for the visa.
The certificate of sponsorship, contrary to its name, is not a paper document but rather a virtual document which carries a specific reference number. This reference number is specific to you and the job that you have been offered so can only be used once.
Please be aware: Not just any UK company can offer you employment therefore first check with Visa Box as there are lots of fake offers of employment (scams).
