The UK Border Agency has put arrangements in place for migrants following the judgment of 6 April 2009 in the judicial review brought by the HSMP Forum Ltd. 

The announcement reads:

The judgment relates to the ‘continuous residence’ requirement for migrants who want to settle (or be given ‘indefinite leave to remain’) in the United Kingdom. It covers migrants who were sent a Highly Skilled Migrant Programme (HSMP) approval letter on the basis of applications made before 3 April 2006, and who obtained entry clearance or permission to stay in the United Kingdom (also called ‘leave to remain’) on the basis of that letter. 

The arrangements are set out in a policy document and in the HSMP Forum judicial review (settlement in the United Kingdom) published on the UK Border Agency website.

The popular Highly Skilled Migrant Programme was replaced last year by Tier 1 of the Points Based System.
