High-earning non-European professional migrant workers will be exempted from the British government’s annual UK immigration cap, which comes into effect in April. This week the Home Office announced a radical shake up of the Tier 2 working visa system, including the figures for the cap on migration.
The Tier 2 working visa system is a disaster waiting to happen.
However, since the Immigration Minister confirmed that employers filling a vacancy that attracts a salary of £150,000 or more will be exempt from the cap, footballers are unlikely to be affected by the limit on the number of certificate of sponsorship (CoS) that may be allocated. Many top players pocket this much in a single week.
The Home Office has unveiled details of a radical overhaul to the Tier 2 working visa route today, scraping much of the sponsorship scheme employers signed up to when the Work Permit scheme was replaced by the points based system two years ago.
Airbus UK has had repeated requests to bring engineering experts into the UK to test the aircraft wings ignored by the Home Office and UK Border Agency for almost two months, according to reports in the Telegraph.
