Points Based Immigration System

From 1 January 2021, free movement of people within the EU will end and the UK will introduce a points-based immigration system.

The Home Office has issued The UK’s points-based immigration system: an introduction for employers. It contains guidance on the proposed points-based immigration system, which assigns points for specific skills, qualifications, salaries and shortage occupations. Visas are then awarded to those who gain enough points.

If you need any further guidance please contact Andrew Macmillan or complete a contact form.
