The United Kingdom (UK) government has started implementing various important changes to the UK immigration system on Thursday, which would directly affect applications from Pakistan.
The British government has expanded the operation of the new Points Based System with the launch of Tier 2 that offers jobs to skilled migrants and Tier 5 for temporary workers or youth mobility. The government will also launch a new single generic Youth Mobility Scheme.
“The current work permit scheme will become part of Tier 2 while Tier 5 will cover those travelling temporarily to the UK for mainly non-economic reasons, including sportspeople, entertainers, charity workers and those travelling under international agreements,” the British High Commission said.
