Dear S.Lassam

Thank you for your enquiry of 12 December. This has been handled routinely outside of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000.

I have been in the process of establishing the information we hold and can confirm that we are unable to provide you with data on used Certificates of Sponsorship (COS) and associated work visas issued by the UKBA. We are unable to match this data in order to get visa related figures. Although we hold this information, to obtain this information would exceed the £600 cost limit if supplied under the FIOA.

We can provide you with information on used CoS only within prescribed cost. If you wish to received this information you would need to provide us with the time period you are interested in.

Please note that we could not provide you with information on length of work visa.

When you provide this information we will aim to send you a full response to your request within twenty working days of its receipt. I look forward to hearing from you shortly. However, please note that if I do not receive appropriate clarification of your request within three months from the date of this letter, I will consider this request to be closed.

Kind Regards
