The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) is an island country that sits north- west of mainland Europe. It is made up of mainland Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) and the northern part of the island of Ireland (Northern Ireland ). It has numerous smaller islands. The UK is low lying in the east. It has mountains in the north of England, in Scotland, in Northern Ireland and in Wales.
On 31 December 2020,at 11.00 PM, freedom of movement between the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU) Will end. This document sets out further details on how their new immigration system will operate. At the heart of it will be the Points - Based System. This set out how they would fulfill their commitment to the British public to take back control of our borders by ending free movement and introducing a single, global immigration system. The PointsBased System will cater for the most highly skilled workers, skilled workers, students and a range of other specialist work routes including routes for global leaders in their field and innovators.
The Points-Based System will be a fair system, because we will treat people from every part of the world equally. It will also reflect the careful consideration being given to the Windrush Lessons Learned Review produced by Wendy Williams.
Under the new skilled worker system, anyone coming to the UK to work will need to demonstrate that:
The Graduate Visa will be available to international students who have completed a degree in the UK from summer 2021. This will enable international students to remain in the UK and work at any skill level for two years after they have completed their studies. It will be an unsponsored route.
The Intra-company Transfer (ICT) route allows multinational organisations to facilitate temporary moves into the UK for key business personnel through their subsidiary branches, subject to ICT sponsorship requirements being met. The route will require applicants to be in roles skilled to RQF 6 (graduate level equivalent), and subject to a different minimum salary threshold from the main skilled worker route.

The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code is used to assess the correct skill level and appropriate salary level for specific job roles. All jobs have a corresponding Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code. Each SOC code has a designated skill level. This determines whether the job meets the requirements of the skilled worker route.
The occupations in the SOC are classified at four levels of aggregation to suit the needs of various data users: major group, minor group, broad occupation, and detailed occupation. Each lower level of detail identifies a more specific group of occupations. The 23 major groups, listed below, are divided into 98 minor groups, 459 broad occupations, and 867 detailed occupations.
|13-0000||Business and Financial Operations Occupationss|
|15-0000||Computer and Mathematical Occupations|
|17-0000||Architecture and Engineering Occupations|
|19-0000||Life, Physical, and Social Science Occupations|

Migrants must demonstrate they have the ability required for the route and the role they are coming to the UK for.
The level of English language ability required is set as appropriate for each relevant route based on the Common European Framework of Reference for languages. For example, students at degree level must demonstrate their ability at level B2 (A-Level or equivalent) and skilled workers B1 (ASLevel or equivalent).
The Immigration Skills Charge will be levied on UK employers of skilled workers on the same basis as now Employers who sponsor non-EU migrant workers under Tier 2 (General) and (Intra Company Transfer) will be required, as now, to pay the Immigration Skills Charge (ISC), unless a specific exemption applies.
Employers must pay £1,000 per skilled worker for the first 12 months, with an additional £500 charge for each subsequent six-month period.
Under the Points-Based System we will apply the ISC to sponsoring employers in respect of both EU and non-EU migrant workers.
Discounted rates of £364 per sponsored worker per year will apply as they do now to charities and Small and Medium Enterprises.
Biometric fee will include in the application fee.
