    I found this question in a Job Listing for a UK Company.

    "Will you now or in the future require work authorization sponsorship?"

    What does it mean?

    Thanks everybody

    This is a guess, but I think I am close...

    Do you need (now or in the future) a piece of paper that allows you to work in this country?

    Is it in the section of the application where it asks about citizenship etc?

    Yes, in fact the first question was: "Are you authorized to work in the country in which you are applying for a position?"

    So, in your opinion they refers to a sort of visa?

    In the US, yes you need a work visa.
    But in other countries they call them different things, but the concept is the same - government permission to work in that particular country.

    the sponsorship refers to a company willing to hire you so that you can then get your work permit. It's like the Italian permesso di soggiorno. If you want to work in Italy you need to find someone who will hire you.

    Well, into EU countries this is not necessary, that's true?
    For example, if I want to go to work in UK I should answer "no" to that question, that's right?

    SI'. La domanda e' se ti serve un garante (il datore di lavoro) per richiedere il permesso di lavoro. Se sei cittadino EU puoi lavorare tranquillamente in GB, non ti serve permesso.

    I'm not sure about the immigration laws in GB, But what forumuser says seems true. If you are an UE citizen I don't think you need a sponsorship.
