The government of UK has released a “Statement of Intent” announcing major reforms to the UK immigration rules and regulations. The latest reforms would impact most of the UK tiers, which are under the points based system.

The new immigration reforms would be done in three major categories such as UK Tier 1 Investor, UK Tier 2 Skilled workers and UK Business visitors.

The tier 1 Investor category is intended for high net value immigrants who make considerable financial investments in the UK. After the suggestions by the Migration Advisory Committee, the immigration rules for investors will be amended on 6 November 2014. Effective 6 November 2014, according to the new reforms the amount of investment would be increased.  

Similarly, amendments would also be made in Tier 2 skilled employees. Effective 6 November 2014, a test named “genuine vacancy” would be applied for Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer and Tier 2 General applications where there are sensible grounds to consider that an authentic vacancy doesn’t exist. An Entry Clearance Officer or caseworker can also ask for further evidence from an applicant or the sponsor. The UK Home Office to grant additional guidance detailing to the criteria that would be taken into account by caseworkers, while assessing the authenticity of a role.

Business Visitors is another category where the immigration rules are going to be reformed. The home Office would extend the list of permissible actions that Business travelers might undergo when residing in the UK.

Effective 6 November 2014, individuals arriving to the UK under the Business Visitor category can undertake the additional activities including the previous ones.
