Changes to Tier 2 / Work permit holders Settlement requirements

UK Border Agency has amended the Immigration Rules with immediate effect. 

Work permit holders and Tier 2 migrants will need to provide specified documents to confirm that they are being paid at or above the appropriate rate for their job.  This is in addition to the employer’s confirmation.

From today, any settlement application by a Tier 2 migrant or a work permit holder must include:
• a payslip and a personal bank or building society statement; or
• a payslip and a building society pass book

If they do not provide this evidence, their application may be refused.

For any advice or assistance with your settlement application, please contact us.
