Important News for Skilled Workers

Published 12 April 2024

The UK Immigration Minister, Tom Pursglove, has confirmed in a written response to a question raised in the UK Parliament that:

“Until the Immigration Rules are amended next Spring, the current salary and Minimum Income Requirement thresholds, and policies relating to dependants, remain in place and at the current levels. Those already in the Skilled work route, and applications made before the rules change, will not be subject to the new £38,700 salary threshold when they change employment, extend, or settle.”

This is good news for those already in the UK and those whose applications to become Skilled Workers will be submitted prior to the changes planned for Spring 2024. We are aware that many of you have been worried about your future, hopefully, the above will provide some reassurance.
