The Home Office has announced that because the quota of 10,000 SBS Hospitality sector work permits has almost been reached, the programme will temporarily be suspended from today. Any applications that are submitted to the Home Office will not be accepted and will be returned to the applicant with the fee.
The Food Manufacturing sector of the SBS programme is not affected by this particular quota and will remain open.
The Home Office has issued an apology for any inconvenience caused and hopes to re-open the quota soon. More information will be published on this website once it becomes available.
