Is there any other Information a sponsor must state on the CoS

Hello house. Please I want you to shed more light on this. What does the home office mean by fieldwork in Appendix A paragraph 111(c) of immigration rules. Am asking because my second application for tier 5 charity worker visa has just been refused because the ECO stated that he is not satisfied that the roles ascribed to me is fieldwork under the meaning in Appendix A paragraph 111 (c) of the immigration rules. My sponsor stated on my CoS that my role is purely fieldwork and that no salaries or wages will be paid to me. My sponsor also stated that I am not filling a permanent position and stated their mission statement. Please what do you think they mean by fieldwork again? I am given opportunity for administrative review. My first application was also refused for this same reason. Are these ECOs doing this deliberately?

Hi, maybe this can help you understand more about the meaning regarding the refusal of your application (sorry to hear about it though)

111. In addition, a Certificate of Sponsorship reference number will only be considered to be valid:
(c) where the Certificate of Sponsorship Checking Service entry shows that the Certificate of Sponsorship has been issued in the Charity Workers subcategory, if the work the applicant is being sponsored to do is:
(i) voluntary fieldwork which contributes directly to the achievement or advancement of the sponsor’s charitable purpose;
(ii) not paid or otherwise remunerated, including receipt of benefits in kind, (except reasonable expenses outlined in section 44 of the National Minimum Wage Act); and
(iii) not filling a permanent position, including on a temporary basis.

Hi, At Uk goverment website look for the collection of the current "Immigration Rules", from there you can read the rest of the guidance that might help you to understand it better regarding the Tier 5 charity worker rules.

God bless you Lucky. I have read the whole guidance and I noticed that all the required information were stated on my certificate of sponsorship. I read paragraph 105-111. This is why am worried about what else do they mean about field work because according to what I understand my CoS meets the requirements.

I suspect the key phrase is "voluntary fieldwork which contributes directly to the achievement or advancement of the sponsor’s charitable purpose". If your ECO wasn't satisfied that this what you would be doing then that is why your visa was refused. You also have a previous refusal so it may be that they simply do not believe that you are genuinely coming to the UK for the purposes which you have stated.

Thanks for your response. I was in the UK in 2013 on Tier 2 visa but came back to my country before my visa expired in 2015. So I applied for charity visa in 2017 but was refused. And I reapplied this February again. My sponsor also stated on my CoS that my role contributes to the achievement of their charitable objective. They also stated that my role is voluntary fieldwork. That is why I am confused. Voluntary fieldwork is defined as activities which are not offered on salary or waged rate according to the immigration rules. It was stated on my CoS that my work is unpaid and that I am not filling a permanent position.

With two recent refusals on your record you are probably going to want to engage the services of a reputable OISC registered immigration adviser before lodging another application.

You can always apply, whether your visa will be granted is another matter. If you have previously been granted a Tier 2 visa then that would be a more logical course of action than applying for a third Tier 5 visa.

Ok Brits. I went to the UK on Tier 2 with a different organization. So I am asking if I can apply for Tier 2 visa through this organization that want to sponsor me on charity. Thanks and God bless you
