UK Visa

UK sets harder visa rule . According to the BBC, United Kingdom Home Secretary James Cleverly has proposed a set of new measures targeted at reducing migration.

The minimum wage criteria for acquiring a skilled worker visa in the United Kingdom is scheduled to rise. The current barrier of £26,000 will be raised to £38,700.


Cleverly told parliament on Monday that the measures’ application the previous year may have resulted in a reduction of 300,000 migrants each year.


According to the BBC, persons with health and social care visas will be excluded from the higher income requirement.

However, overseas caregivers will no longer be permitted to bring dependents, such as their partners and children.

The implication is that if a UK citizen marries a non-UK citizen, their new spouse will be unable to visit the UK until they earn £38,700.

According to the BBC, net migration in the United Kingdom will hit 745,000 in 2022, representing the difference between persons arriving to the country and those departing.

“We will ensure people only bring dependents whom they can support financially, by raising the minimum income for family visas to the same threshold as the minimum salary threshold for Skilled Workers, £38,700,” stated the deputy prime minister.
