Immigration cap is quiet risky for UK economy

Recently few months back, the UK immigration authorities had made tight changes in the immigration policies to keep a strict check on number of immigrants coming in the country. Few months back the immigration minister has initiated these policies with aim to reduce immigration figures to just few thousands.

Action taken by Government:

The immigration authorities have come up with the execution of new policies April this year according to which they have permanently capped the two categories namely Tier 1 and Tier 2 relating to the skilled immigrants rules this has come as a result of the temporary restrictions which were implemented last years. These rules are introduced to keep a hard check for coming of the skilled immigrants who are aspirant of coming to the country and settling in.

For now in the Tier 1 category has been changed and turned into a new category of Tier 1 which have a strict criteria for exceptionally talented people, which is quiet difficult to meet up. To curb more number even Tier 2 aspirants it is not easy to come, as now they are have been more restrictions even for those who get a job offer from the UK employers which are now highly reduced by high numbers from21,000 visas to just very few thousands.

The Report Results:

As per a new report Limits on Tier1 and Tier 2 for 2011/2012, by the Government’s Migration Advisory Council, have thrown the light on the consequences of these new policies over the country’s economy. It further explains that the country might lead to major losses of around half a billion pounds by high decrease in number of skilled immigrants from the non- European countries as this will serve as a severe losses to country’s GDP.

Such a situation may lead country into the difficult consequences even the economy is still recovering itself from the global crisis it has lately suffered from.

The report came out with a point of view that the contributions from immigrants under Tier 1 and Tier 2 immigrants have a positive impact on the GDP of the country and also to the net public financial issues and also contributing positively to the public provisions as of education, social services and health related services.

It further says that the changes made in the category of immigrants are very imbalanced and certain sectors are expected to pay for it adversely.
