Copy Link

The whole new immigration policy of the UK is on the way. The UK is onto the path of introducing the points-based immigration system. BCT is going to give all essential information about the new immigration rules of the UK for the participants of the LIfe in the UK Test, who are aspiring to settle in the UK forever or want to go do some kind of job.

The United Kingdom is going to introduce a new set of immigration rules after its separation from the European Union. The free movement across the UK will come to an end with new immigration rules to be effective from 1 January 2021.

Immigration laws in the UK are exhaustive and can be found in full text on the official UK Border Agency site. However, the most recent developments that are of value are:

As per the points-based immigration rules, non-EU and EU citizens will be treated equally. Everyone will need advanced permission to work in the UK, except Irish citizens. The points-based system will provide a chance for immigrants to collect points and get the Visa after they fulfil specific requirements to match the minimum needed points for eligibility. It will be an effective and efficient set of arrangements for employers in the UK to hire skilled workers across the globe or from Europe.

Present Residents of the UK:

The new immigration rules will not be applicable to the persons from the European Union who are already residing in the UK by 31 December 2020.

Those persons who belong to the EU will be required to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme until 30 June 2021. As per the transition system for the employers, they can accept the passports and National identity cards of the EU citizens until 30 June 2021.

Conditions for the Skilled workers as per New Immigration Rules:

As per the new immigration policy, employers who want to hire overseas employees to work in the UK Labour Market will be required to have a sponsorship license from the Home Office of the UK from 1 January 2021. This license sponsored from the Home Office will enable the employers to recruit skilled workers from different parts of the world.

Immigration (Places of Detention) Direction 2009

This particular change made to the law was done in 2009 by the secretary of state. This law was an amendment of the existing Immigration Act of 1971. The law allows for the detention of any offending individual in specifically allocated spots, for a period of not more than five consecutive days since the day the person was first brought to the facility. These places or spots of detention include the following locations:

As per the latest skilled worker system, anyone coming to the UK to work will need to show that:

• He/She has a job offer from a Home Office licensed sponsor.
• Required Skill Level should be as per the rules, i.e. RQF 3 or above (A-Level and equivalent).
• He/She speaks Standard English.

What is RQF-3 or A-Level?

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The salary rules are different for workers in specific health or education jobs, and “new entrants” at the start of their careers.

There are around 70 points to be collected as per the new immigration rules in the UK. Those 70 points will be based on a different set of characteristics in which some of them are mandatory or tradeable.
