UK Visa cap consultation now launched

- Posted in United Kingdom by Visa Bureauon 01 July 2010

The Migration Advisory Committee will gather evidence to help determine the appropriate UK Visa limit, which will be implemented in April 2011.

Submissions can be made to the consultation until 7 September 2010, and the advice will be presented to the government by the end of that month.

The process will look at Tier 1 and 2 of the UK immigration points system, and cover both skilled people applying to work in the UK with a job offer, and those applying without an offer.

MAC chair, Professor David Metcalf, said: “The MAC is pleased that it has been asked to carry out this work and looks forward to working with its partners to develop robust and well-informed advice to the government.”
