Post What is Immigration Sponsorship?
Individuals who wish to enter a country but cannot or do not qualify for non-sponsorship visas must be sponsored by an entity or person legally living in that country. A common type of immigration sponsorship is employment sponsorship, in which a company hires a worker from another country and makes arrangements for that worker to immigrate. The process of employment sponsorship may involve documenting the need for hiring that particular employee over local labor, as well as showing that the employee meets other immigration criteria, such as having a clean criminal record. The process of immigration sponsorship can be arduous, particularly because immigration officials in many countries are concerned about the ability of new immigrants to support themselves without relying on public funds or welfare benefits. In the United States, an immigration sponsor must typically assume financial responsibility for those whom he sponsors, including the consequences of the new immigrant receiving public assistance because of his inability to support himself. In such cases, the immigration sponsor may be required to reimburse the government for any funds spent on the sponsored immigrant.
