Balanced migration in a nutshell
Balanced migration - in a nutshell main source

  • Balanced migration would seek to bring the numbers of immigrants into line with the number of emigrants.

  • The main change would be to control the number of non-EU citizens who are given the right to settle permanently in the UK.

Points based system
Points-Based System main source

  • Covers migrants outside the EEA and Switzerland.

  • Migrants must pass a points assessment before they get permission to enter or remain in the UK.

  • There are 5 Tiers, each has different points requirements – the number of points the migrants needs and the way they are awarded depends on the tier.

  • Migrants in any tier except Tier 1 (highly skilled workers) must be sponsored before applying for a visa.

Tier 2 general
Tier 2 (General) main source

  • Allows UK employers to employ nationals from outside the settled workforce to fill jobs that can not be filled by settled workers.

  • Coalition Govt introduced an interim limit on the number of applications under Tier 2 to prevent a ‘rush’ of applications before a permanent cap in April 2011

  • From 6 April 2011 the annual limit on numbers of CoS available under Tier 2 (General) is 20,700 for those entering the UK from overseas.

  • Exemptions to this limit (Unrestricted CoS):-

    • Extensions to Tier 2 visas granted before 5th April 2011

    • Changes of employment of Tier 2 visa holders granted before 5th April 2011

    • Switching immigration category (provided already in UK)

  • Requirements of the RLMT:

    • Must be advertised to settled workers in Jobcentre Plus plus one other method (e.g. BMJ)

    • Advertised to calendar workers for 28 days

    • CoS assigned within 6 months of the date vacancy was advertised

  • Postgraduate Doctors do not need to meet the RLMT if they have already started Specialty Training and are applying to continue their training
