Migration Advisory Committee's Second Consultation Regarding a Wider Review of Tier 2 Now Launched

    View Author July 2015

    As we previously reported the Prime Minister’s newly formed Immigration Taskforce has commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee to:

    • conduct a review of Tier 2 salary thresholds by 21 July 2015 with a view to increasing minimum thresholds across all Tier 2 categories by the Autumn; and
    • conduct a wider review of the Tier 2 routes by mid-December 2015.

    With both commissions, the Government has set the MAC a very clear mandate: to review Tier 2 of the Points Based System with a view to making recommendations about significantly reducing economic migration to the UK.
