    The Spring 2024 Immigration Rules Statement of Changes

    🏛 The Spring 2024 Immigration Rules Statement of Changes, enacted on April 4th, introduces significant changes for employers sponsoring non-resident workers (ready to get through 289 pages 😬 ? )

    – These changes include a notable increase in the minimum income requirements for sponsoring partners on family visas and significant changes for employers sponsoring migrant workers.  The Skilled Worker visa route now requires higher general minimum salary thresholds, increasing from £26,200 to £38,700 gross per annum.
    – Additionally, the Shortage Occupation List is also replaced by the Immigration Salaries List (ISL), affecting various skilled roles.
    – The Home Office has already estimated a 13% impact on Skilled Worker visas this year, which would have been deterred by the new salary hike.

    ✍ Here are some examples :

    🔹 Those with PhDs and those in shortage occupations will also face new salary requirements: from £23,580 to £34,830 for relevant PhDs and from £20,960 to £30,960 for those with a relevant STEM PhD, New Entrants, or workers on the Immigration Salary List for shortage occupations.
    🔹 The changes impact different sectors differently, with national pay scales for sectors such as teaching and healthcare undergoing adjustments, while roles such as nannies and childminders are now below the skill level required for Skilled Worker sponsorship.
    🔹 The Scale-up sponsor license offers a more affordable alternative for qualified companies (less than £2K increase from £34,600 to £36,300).
    🔹 Another alternative for companies could be the Global Business Mobility specifically with the Graduate Trainee visa continuing to benefit from 30% discount and offering a threshold of £25,410.

    Overall, these changes pose significant challenges for businesses, particularly those unable to offer competitive salaries and businesses in regions where wages are much lower than London’s ones.
