Update on settlement requirements for Tier 2 migrants and work permit holders

31 October 2011

On 6 April 2011, the Immigration Rules were amended to introduce a salary requirement for settlement applications made by work permit holders and migrants under Tier 2 of the points-based system. Their applications must now include written confirmation from their employer or sponsor that they are being paid at or above the appropriate rate for their job.

From 31 October 2011, there will be further changes to the Immigration Rules. Work permit holders and Tier 2 migrants will need to provide specified documents to confirm that they are being paid at or above the appropriate rate for their job. This is in addition to the employer's confirmation.

From 31 October, any settlement application by a Tier 2 migrant or a work permit holder must include:

•    a payslip and a personal bank or building society statement; or
•    a payslip and a building society pass book.

If they do not provide this evidence, their application may be refused by the UK Border Agency.
