Government reforms Tier 2 visa to protect NHS and schools

Government reforms Tier 2 visa to protect NHS and schools
The government has announced more professions will be exempt from the Tier 2 visa salary threshold, following concerns the initial £30,000 limit would lead to a post-Brexit staffing crisis in schools and hospitals. From 30 March 2019, non-EEA citizens coming to the UK to work as nurses, paramedics, medical radiographers and secondary school teachers for STEM subjects and Mandarin, will only need to meet the lower rate of £20,800. The change comes in response to concerns that individuals in these vital, high-skilled but low-paid jobs would not meet the salary threshold needed to enter the UK to work, at a time when concerns over Brexit have caused EU migration to fall to its lowest point in a decade. The longer-term visa regime affecting all migrants, which will be implemented after the Brexit transition period ends in December 2020, has still to be decided. In the event of a no-deal Brexit, EU migrants would be allowed to enter the country and apply for temporary leave to remain.
