The UK has made some amendments to the permanent residence requirements for Tier 2 visa category under which the applicants will have to submit a proof of high salary jobs from their employers and sponsors.
The UK introduced the changes in the Immigration Rules for implementing the salary requirements for permanent residence applications submitted by the work permit holders and Tier 2 Visa Migrants on 6 April 2011. Those changes have now come into effect from 31 Oct 2011. The work permit holders and Tier 2 visa migrants will need to submit payroll documents as evidence to show that they are paid high at their jobs. The applicant will need to submit the following documents:
- Written confirmation from their employer regarding their salary
- A pay slip and a personal bank or building society statement or building society pass book
Failure in the submission of these documents will lead to cancellation of the application. The immigration authorities stated that they feel the amendments are minor and they “will continue to have regard to the equality considerations of these changes, and will work to limit or mitigate, where possible, any adverse impact that into."
UK Prime Minister David Cameron said, “As a Coalition government we agree about the importance of controlling immigration, but our approach has rightly focused on how to do this without damaging business or discouraging inward investment in to the UK" and "We've begun to be much more selective not just about how many people come in – but who actually comes in."
