UK Net Immigration Has Hit Peaks To 298,000: ONS Report Says

28 Feb 2015


Immigration News

The United Kingdom has hit headlines yet another time for all good reasons. According to the recent released statistics, it has observed that the net immigration to UK has increased to 298,000.

When David Cameron, prime minister of the UK, came to power in 2010 said that the UK wants to see net immigration in the tens of thousands instead of hundreds of thousands. However, the recent figures show that net the UK immigration has reached a peak level, since 2005.

Sources said that the net migration is the difference between total number of individuals who arrive to reside in the UK for a minimum period of one year and the number of individuals who are departing the country at least for a period of one year.

In 2005, the net immigration has peaked at 320,000, and at the time of 2010 elections it was 252,000.

According to the ONS (Office for National Statistics), the huge rise in the latest immigration statistics was driven by a statistically major rise in migrants coming to the UK.

In the previous year up to September, the immigration was around 624,000 when compared to 530,000 earlier that year.

This surge was driven due to the increase in total count of people arriving to the UK for the purpose of work. Presumably, the increasing strength of the UK economy and creation of job opportunities had baited people to migrate to the UK.

The latest immigration figures has revealed some vital points about  the UK immigration which includes; on a whole 271,000 individuals arrive to the UK for the sake of employment, in line with the latest released statistics, representing a rise from 217,000 when compared to previous year. Out of those, 57% were EU nationals and 25% were foreign nationals, and remaining were British nationals.

Among the people who migrated to reside in the UK for the purpose work, 62% (167,000) came with a valid job offer and 38% (104,000) came to seek a job.

A major rise in net immigration was from outside EU, the net immigration was 190,000 during the end of September 2014, up from 138,000 in 2013.
