Lawyers signal Tier 2 visa salary requirement may be easing

27 July 2018

Ilda de Sousa is quoted in an article by PM Daily: "Lawyers signal Tier 2 visa salary requirement may be easing."

Ilda de Sousa, immigration partner at Kingsley Napley, also said her firm had achieved successful restricted certificate applications at salary thresholds of around £45,000 in July. However, she warned average salaries would remain comparatively high for the time being.

At face value, now doctors have been removed from the cap, it means some visas are available, but this will continue to help applicants on higher salaries over those on lower salaries,” she said.

The change in rules will probably be beneficial to sectors like financial services or legal services, because those salaries are reasonably high. But even well-paid individuals in other sectors are likely to miss out, because their salaries will be nothing near those in competing industries.”
