Not sure where to put this as it covers a lot. Mods please move if in the wrong place.

These changes include the criminality thresholds


2.4 We have also revised and simplified the rules on the exercise of the powers to refuse or cancel permission on suitability grounds. There are changes to the criminality thresholds. We have replaced the current different thresholds with a single sentence-based threshold of 12 months, applying to offences committed in the UK or overseas. This will also align decision-making on criminality with the current deportation threshold of 12 months imprisonment under the UK Borders Act 2007, creating consistency across the immigration system and making it easier for migrants to understand what impact their convictions will have on their immigration status. There are also new grounds for refusal or cancellation for customs breaches, rough sleeping or being involved in a sham marriage.
