IMPACT – HIGH
What is the news? The Migration Advisory Committee released its report containing recommendations for the U.K.’s immigration system following its exit from the European Union and the conclusion of the transitional period on Dec. 31, 2020. The report covers the points-based system and salary thresholds.
The MAC recommends retaining the Tier 2 (General) route for skilled workers with a job offer, introducing a route for skilled workers without a job, and a review of the settlement criteria before raising settlement salary thresholds. Each of the three recommendations are summarized below.
Skilled workers with a job offer
Skilled workers without a job offer
Background: The MAC published its report in response to the U.K. government’s request for its recommendations on salary thresholds and examination of points-based systems. It is hoped that the recommendations will assist in the creation of the U.K.’s national immigration system, which is scheduled to come into force on Jan. 1, 2021.
Analysis & Comments: The MAC’s recommendations provide some predictability in retaining the Tier 2 (General) route and the existing framework for salary thresholds. While the government is not legally bound by the MAC report, it will take the recommendations into consideration, which will likely influence its policymaking.
