The UK's points-based immigration system from 1 January 2021
Tuesday 14th July 2020
Yesterday, Monday 13 July, the government published further detail on the UK's points-based immigration system.
The new system will take effect from 1 January 2021, once freedom of movement with the EU has ended. It will treat EU and non-EU citizens equally and prioritise skills and talent over where a person comes from. This further detail sets out:
• The principles of the system - a single, global immigration system prioritises skills and talent over where a person comes from
• Further detail on the immigration routes - the main economic migration routes for those wishing to apply to work, study or set up a business in the UK
• Applying through the new system - more information on the application process.
