Further CHANGES to IMMIGRATION RULES from September 2012!

Changes have been made to the UK Immigration Rules once again!

The changes amend the Immigration Rules further to the Supreme Court’s judgment in the case of Alvi . They follow on from the earlier changes on 19 July 2012.  Please see our earlier post ‘Family Migration Changes from 9th July 2012!’.

Some further amendments that are not related to the Supreme Court’s judgement are also being made, including:

  • changes to the family and private life rules and the transitional provisions for dependants of points-based system migrants;
  • changes to Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) of the points-based system; and
  • changes to the list of low risk countries for the purpose of Tier 4 of the points-based system.

The Rule changes came into effect as of 6 September 2012 and the changes to the list of low-risk countries for Tier 4 and the Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) route came into force on 1 October.

For full details, please see the Statement of Changes to the Immigration Rules and the explanatory memorandum within the document.
