Tier 1 (G) vs ILR with New Rules

Post by abc111 » Mon Feb 27, 2012 12:54 pm

Hi,

I have come across a news about setting a new earning threshold of £35k in order to earn the ILR will be set in next few days...

I am wondering if this is going to be applicable to people that will get the visa AFTER the announcement or will ALSO be applicable to people like me who have had their visa since 2008!

Please advise!!

Thanks.

This law will be applied retrospectively for all ILR applicants no matter when you got your initial work permit

Also on the UKBA website it clearly mentions the following in bold...

The information in this section is based on Part 6A (paragraph 245CD) and Appendix A of the Immigration Rules, which you can find on the right side of this page. The Immigration Rules are subject to change, and you must meet all the requirements of the rules that are in place at the time when you apply for settlement.

This seems unfair as I had only to show above 26K for my initial Tier-1 application and the same for my extension (not that I wont be able to satisfy this new requirement)

Nothing is unfair for British Government. This government is a traitor government. They went to south Asia saying they will do business and form east India company and then later started to forcefully ruling the country! Now they brought the immigrants saying they will be British national after 5 years and now moving the goal post after sucking all the money from them! anything is possible for this traitor government. No other country in the world applies Retrospective laws for immigrants. new laws are applicable to new immigrants. But in UK they apply retrospectively. TRAITOR!!!! :twisted:

Tier 1 is a "highly skilled" migrant category, if someone aint earning 35K then they probably arent so "highly skilled" :wink:

@agesteven
Dude...I dont set the policies at UKBA orite ?!?
say wot u have written to the immigration minister if you have the guts, no point in taking your frustration out here. I think its you who needs to get real & come out of your lil fairy tale land

@Somudro
corporate pay packages are always higher than education industry's pay, if satisfaction of teaching is worth more to you than making money then you are better off teaching back home, the country you may be from probably needs teachers more than UK

I think that new £35k threshold will only apply to workers under Tier 2 (General) leave that was granted after 6 April 2011. The proposal for the salary threshold was introduced under the consultations which closed last Summer for how to alter the Tier 2 route. The MAC report said that it was not considering the Tier 1 General route because any alterations to settlement criteria would likely not pass a legal challenge.

Starting in April 2011, they introduced a points test for ILR for Tier 1 General applicants, which I'd guess is the only criteria we'll have to pass.

Please let's just ignore anyone who writes "wot" and "orite" and claims to know anything about being "highly skilled."

I pity those who are always after money. Their loyalty to their home land and any other country they live in the world will always remain doubtful. People come to the developed countries for a better way of life. Ignore the ignorant idiot who seems to be living in the state of denial. According to the ignorant's definition, an illiterate take away owner will be highly skilled who makes 35K a year.

if there were an IQ requirement to join up, most hypocrites on this thread would be left out...think they know the meaning of "state of denial" ?!?

i guess there are ways to get around the english language requirement.

an illiterate take-away owner would fare better & not speak of something he doesnt understand...lmao

I guess idiots on this forum need to understand who is in denial rather than trying to teach someone what denial is.

the 35K limit is coming you ignoramooses...accept that & start slogging or continue to be in "state of denial"

muahahahahahahaha...so funny this nitwit is still talking trying to be one up

All I would say to the self proclaimed highly skilled ignorant is

"He who knows not and knows not that he knows not, is a fool. Shun him" lol

Manka,

You do not need to insult people to put a point across.

Let us all learn to act in a civil and dignified way when addressing others on the forum.

I know we were told that the rules can change when applying for ILR but how reasonable is this? Will it affect existing Tier1 General Migrant? Really feels like packing and leaving the UK now. I am fed up with this micky mouse game they are playing with Us.

Just reading through the MAC report on settlement of skilled migrant workers, I can see they are refering only to Tier 1 exceptional talent route and the Tier 2 Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT), shortage occupation, ministers of religion and sportsperson routes. I am hoping I am right, Tier1 General will be excluded and only those that applied from April 2011 will be affected. Here is the report
