Consultation on non-EU economic migration limit

Close date: 7 September 2010

The Government consults on the number of non-EU economic migrants permitted to enter the UK for work purposes and how such a limit will work in practice. The Government will introduce an annual cap for Tier 1 (highly-skilled individuals) and Tier 2 (skilled workers with a job offer) applications under the points-based system from April 2011.
