UK Business Immigration – What's in Store for 2024?

March 2024
Region: Europe

Watch our March Business Immigration webinar recording, where Annabel Mace and May Cheung bring you up to speed on key UK immigration changes in the pipeline, particularly those affecting employers that sponsor (or are looking to sponsor) non-British/Irish talent under the Skilled Worker route of the Home Office’s Points Based System, including:

  • Salary threshold increases from 4 April 2024 for Skilled Worker visas
  • The impact for existing sponsored employees, Student and Graduate visa holders and other categories
  • The new Immigration Salary List (replacing the Shortage Occupation List)
  • Other relevant changes in the new Immigration Rules from 4 April 2024
  • The end of sponsor licences renewals but the beginning of tougher sponsor compliance?
  • Digitalisation of the UK immigration system, including the transition from Biometric Residence Permits (BRPs) to online status from 31 December 2024
  • The increase in civil penalties for illegal working to £60,000 per person and other recent right to work changes

This webinar is aimed at anyone with responsibility for sponsored employees, including HR, global mobility and talent acquisition professionals (particularly from a compliance perspective) and in-house counsel, as well as anyone holding Authorising Officer, Key Contact or Level 1 user responsibilities for their organisation’s sponsor licence.
