Exploring cannabis regulations and investment in the UK
The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has today laid new Immigration Rules before Parliament, the majority of which are due to come into force on 13 December 2012. Some of the changes represent a relaxation of current rules whilst others are in response to abuse. Please click on the following link to read the Statement of policy for changes to the points-based system.
The changes cover applications under the points-based system in Tiers 1, 2, 4 and 5, as well as family and private life applications. The main changes to Tier 1 and 2 are summarised below:
For family and private life applications there will be a relaxation of the rules in relation to the evidence to meet the financial requirements. Specifically, the list of documents to evidence employment in the UK has been scaled back where appropriate to do so and more copy documents will be acceptable where originals are not available.
