This session will reflect on the impact of recent changes and consider the potential effects of proposals for further changes.
The past year has been a whirlwind of change in the world of UK immigration law. Join us to reflect on the impact of recent changes and to consider the potential effects of proposals for further changes. A panel of speakers from the Confederation of British Industry and Lewis Silkin LLP will highlight the significant changes to the immigration landscape that we’ve seen over the past year.
We will present on recent developments affecting sponsors, such as the tightening of compliance requirements and tweaks to the cap on skilled workers. We will look at the increasing fees and charges across UK immigration routes and at global trends affecting investor migrants. Come and hear industry experts address the Immigration Rules changes coming up in April, including which of the Migration Advisory Committee’s proposed modifications to the Tier 2 sponsored skilled worker route are likely to be adopted.
