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 main land
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 would they 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.
The new system will treat EU and non-EU citizens equally
The points-based system will provide simple, effective and flexible
arrangements for UK employers to recruit skilled workers from around
the world through a number of different immigration routes.
Get 5 years VISA with multiple entry and Rights to work.
You can sponsor your Dependant Spouse and children.
Dependant can work and study full time.
An employer will not need to be a Home Office licensed visa sponsor to
employ a migrant under the Global Talent route.
Priority will be given to skills, such as innovators, academics and
scientists. Indian workers, especially those in STEM fields.
Their yearly survey showed that the average salary in the UK for men
and women combined was £29,009, which includes those in both
full-time and part work. For those in full-time work, the average UK
salary is £35,423 and £12,083 for those in part-time, but the minimum
salary fixed by the department is £25,600 which is low compared to the
Easy licensing process for Doctors and Medical profession.
From January 2021, the current Global Talent route will open
to EU citizens on the same basis as non-EU citizens. This
means the most highly skilled, who can achieve the required
level of points, will be able to enter the UK without a job offer
if they are endorsed by a recognised UK body, as approved by
the Home Office.
An employer will not need to be a Home Office licensed visa
sponsor to employ a migrant under the Global Talent route.
This route is designed to attract recognised global leaders and
promising individuals in science, humanities, engineering, the
arts and digital technology.
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.
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.
You should expect up to 6 months of processing time for permanent
residency applications made in the UK. Some applications may exceed the
time limits, but most applications are decided within 6 months.
A processing fee is applicable, and as of the time of writing, the cost is
£2389 for an individual application by post
