From 31 October 2011, there are now additional changes to the Immigration Rules. Previously the UKBA amended the Immigration Rules to introduce a salary requirement for settlement applications made by work permit holders and migrants under Tier 2 of the points-based system.
Summary of changes
Under the new rules these applications must now include written confirmation from an applicant’s employer or sponsor that they are being paid at or above the appropriate rate for their job as set out in the Tier 2 codes of practice.
Work permit holders and Tier 2 migrants will now need to provide specified documents to confirm that they are being paid at or above the appropriate rate for their job. This requirement will be in addition to the employer’s confirmation.
