Consultation on introducing a points test for earned citizenship
Close date: 26 October 2009
The Government consults on how the management of the number of people allowed to stay permanently in the UK could be improved, by introducing a points test within the earned citizenship system. For those on the work route to citizenship, a points system would allow for a flexible test to be applied, with the threshold being levered up or down depending on the needs of the UK.
