UK Immigration Minister Damian Green has outlined sweeping reforms and stricter visa criteria for applicants who want to stay or settle in the UK. Plans include closing or reforming routes for overseas domestic workers who are currently protected from exploitation by the ‘Domestic Workers Concession’.
Business leaders are warning the Home Secretary of the risks to economic recovery by removing the rights skilled migrants on work permits to settle in the UK.
The company employs a large of overseas workers, such as Senior Carers on Work Permits, although it is not clear whether or not they would be targeted. Senior Carers on Work Permits looking for new employers can contact Bison UK for advice on 0208 905 1822.
Predictably, the plans to open up the UK higher education market to high quality private competition have been criticised by academics as being ‘elitist’.
Expressing alarm over statistics which claims that one in three foreign spouses are either of Indian or Pakistani origin, Migration Watch UK has called for the introduction of stricter rules for those who want to marry a foreign partner to ensure confidence in the immigration system.
The market for high quality private education, to rival government funded colleges and universities, is opening up. With fees for local students going through the roof, some will choose lower cost private colleges to obtain their degrees and many may go to other EU countries where fees are lower.
