UK Temporary Limit on Non EU Immigrants- Tier 2 Changes

The UKBA is introducing a Temporary Limit on the number of Tier 2 applications with a view to reducing the number of applications to 5% of the number from last year (overall including Tier 1 and Tier 2).

Tier 2 limit will be maintained by limiting the the number of Certificates of Sponsorship each UK sponsor can issue.

This limit will include all Certificates of Sponsorship under Tier 2 including certificates used in Tier 2 extension applications.

The limit will NOT include Tier 2 Intra-Company transfers, Ministers of Religion and Sportspeople.

The limit will NOT include applications by Tier 2 Dependents.

All UK sponsors should receive a letter from UKBA that will outline their Certificate of Sponsorship allocation for the period 19 July 2010 to 31 March 2011.

I will be posting further explanation on the specific details for UK sponsors as stated in the most updated Tier 2 Guidance shortly.
