The Border Agency has announced the UK Visa limit for December has been reached.

On 19 July 2010, the UK government introduced a limit on the number of UK Visa applications that can be issued under Tier 1 (General) of the points-based system until 31 March 2011. The limit does not affect applications from dependents or applications to switch into Tier 1 (General) from a different immigration category, or applications to extend to existing Tier 1 (General) visas.

The limit is administered on a monthly basis, and as the December allocation has been reached the department will not issue any more visas under Tier 1  (General) applications made overseas until allocation reopens in January 2011.

If you are applying under Tier 1 (General) from overseas you can still submit an application for Tier 1 (General) during this closure period but if your application is successful the visa will not be issued until the limit re-opens.


The UK Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people with their  UK Immigration applications to the British Embassy.
