UK Immigration Policy Changes, Advisory from Philippine Embassy in London

Thursday, March 31, 2011

The Philippine Embassy in London advises Filipino nationals in the United Kingdom (UK), especially those who plan to apply for entry to the UK under a work or study route, of the recently announced UK immigration policy changes.

The UK Border Agency (UKBA) announced the following major changes in the Points Based System of Immigration (PBS) effective April 2011. The changes are designed to reduce net migration, to build confidence in the Immigration System, to select the best and brightest to work/study in the UK, and to bear down on the abuses of the system.

  • The Tier 1 (Highly-Skilled Migrants) General Category will be closed to new applications while transitional arrangements will be introduced for existing Tier 1 visa holders looking to extend their stay.
  • Exceptional Talent visas will be introduced for people in science and the arts.
  • Prospective Entrepreneur Visas will likewise be introduced and settlement in the UK for investors will be accelerated.
  • For Tier 2 (Skilled Migrants) Category, there will be a limit of 20,700 places for Out-of-Country (out of the UK) applications, as the route will become more selective and target the best workers.
  • Tier 2 will be reserved for graduate occupations determined by the UKBA and the Migrant Advisory Committee (MAC) - the current list includes nurses, medical practitioners, IT operations technicians, finance/investment analysts and engineers.
The full list is posted on Filipinos are advised to check detailed information on this website on the guidelines and requirements for applying to work or study in the UK.
