What is the new rule of UK immigration?

Table of Contents

The UK has recently  introduced an immigration policy that will affect the people who are living in the country on a long-term basis. The new rule will affect those who have been living in the UK for more than five years and have not yet applied for British citizenship.The UK’s new immigration policy was announced on November 27th, 2018. The policy is designed to cut down the number of low-skilled immigrants coming into the UK. It will also make it more difficult for people to claim asylum in the UK.
The new rule states that if you want to apply for citizenship, you need to be earning at least £18,600 per year or £22,400 per year if you are a couple. If you don’t meet these requirements and you have been living in the country for more than five years then you will not be eligible for permanent residency. The only exceptions to this rule are those who can prove that they need help from public funds due to their age or disability.
There are three main changes that are worth noting:
– The salary threshold has been reduced from £30,000 to £20,000.
– Tier 2 visas will be issued for a maximum of five years instead of two years.
– Entrepreneurs will have their own route under the Tier 1 visa category.
The new rule of immigration is set to come into effect on April 6th, 2019 and will be enforced by 2020. It will affect all immigrants who are not from a European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland country.
