Changes brought in April 2011 onwards has primarily affected a majority of prospective applicants aiming to make UK as their immigration destination in the near future. With UK Tier 1 visa closing down, potential candidates have lost hope on immigrating to the UK, with the former being one of the most sought after immigration programs.

Hopes are diminished, but gates are not closed yet. Entrepreneurs and investors intending to make big cash in the UK have the option of applying under the UK Tier 1 Entrepreneur and Investor category, which too has gone through major changes last month, of course in positive limelight. UK Tier 1 Investor category has witnessed the cut down of its 5 year minimum residence obligation by a generous margin. Similarly, UK Entrepreneur category under the Tier 1 visa would see successful potential applicants getting settlement approval at a faster pace. The introduction of the new UK visitor visa has further added another option for the prospective UK immigrants.

Mr. Ajay Sharma, an immigration expert at Abhinav, states that the changes may affect applicants applying under the UK Tier 1 General Skilled Category but has surely advanced ways for budding investors and entrepreneurs, hence applauding UK as a promising business destination for imminent talent. He also confirmed that applicants with plans to relocate or immigrate permanently will need to look at other immigration options for skilled workers like Federal skilled worker program to Canada, Quebec skilled worker program, Australia skilled migrant program and New Zealand skilled program through expression of interest process. Prospects interested in UK investor and business programs should also closely look at Immigrant investor program to Canada, EB-5, and Visa to USA and New Zealand long term business visa.

Further, he went on to say that for an application process to be a success, pre-requisite is to keep the guidance of an immigration mentor by one’s side, in order to avoid chances of visa denials, if any. A wise, experienced immigration consultant can help in choosing the right immigration destination among the available worldwide immigration options.

Likewise, UK Tier 2 Skilled Worker category has also witnessed assorted amendments in terms of receiving a sponsorship certificate from the employer’s side. The eligibility criteria for latent applicants applying under this category have also been changed.

The preamble of the exceptional talent visa program has brought in new anticipation for people excelling in their niche, as they would be given priority over others!
