UK: Minimum Wage Requirement for Migrants Rise To 30K Pounds

Boris Johnson’s Revision of UK Immigration Criteria

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to revisit the proposal concerning the minimum £30,000 income requirement for migrants wishing to enter the UK post-Brexit. This revision comes as a response to the changing landscape following the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. Johnson’s government aims to reshape the immigration system to align more closely with the nation’s evolving needs and priorities.

Factors Influencing Johnson’s Decision

The proposed £30,000 income threshold seems incongruent with Johnson’s vision for an immigration system akin to Australia’s. Moreover, it aims to notably curtail low-skilled migration, potentially reducing overall immigration numbers.

Speculation looms over the anticipated decrease in individuals entering the UK under this revised criteria. By January 2021, a fully operational successor system will replace the initial plan for border control adjustments.

Introducing the New Methodology

The revamped system prioritizes reclaiming control, fostering global talent, and attracting top-tier professionals, thereby minimizing low-skilled immigration.

Effective January 1, 2021, post the EU transition period, the new immigration policy takes effect. While former Prime Minister Theresa May suggested a gradual implementation, the current administration appears to be veering away from this approach.

Until a UK-EU agreement is reached, freedom of movement restrictions will persist. Additionally, current laws afford EU member state citizens the liberty to seek, work, and reside in other EU countries without additional permissions.

In Conclusion

Practically, the UK doesn’t plan to impose these limitations on specific groups like organizations. However, various categories such as students, self-employed individuals, retirees, and economically inactive persons are subject to distinct constraints
