The UK Border Agency has published new versions of application forms and policy guidance under the following categories of the points-based system:

  • Tier 1 (General)
  • Tier 1 (Entrepreneur)
  • Tier 1 (Investor)
  • Tier 1 (Post-study work)
  • Tier 2 – all categories (application form only – no change to policy guidance)
  • Tier 5 (Temporary worker) – all sub-categories
  • PBS Dependant

These new versions reflect the new requirement for Tier 1 and Tier 5 applicants to obtain biometric residence permits, and other minor changes announced by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) this week.

Applicants must use the new forms, however, and in line with paragraph 34 (I) of the Immigration Rules, the UKBA will continue to accept applications made on the previous version of the application forms until (and including) 4 January 2011. They added that te agency will consider all applications under the current Immigration Rules, regardless of which version of the application form you send.

Full details of all the changes to the policy guidance are published in the tables of changes, which you can find under ‘Related documents’ on the UKBA website.
