April’s Breakfast Briefing – Immigration Law Updates in 2024

Catch up with April’s Breakfast Briefing – Immigration Law Updates in 2024 

Our April Breakfast Briefing is delivered by Amie Trainor and in partnership with guest presenters from Harper Macleod LLP.

Immigration law is rarely at a standstill and 2024 will be no exception. The Government has recently set out its five-point plan for immigration, which, if implemented in full, will see a raft of changes to various immigration routes in the coming year.

The changes scheduled to the skilled worker route for spring 2024 are wide-ranging and were unveiled by the Home Office in December 2023. The most significant change is the plan to increase the minimum general salary threshold for sponsored employment by nearly 50%, from £26,200 per annum to £38,700. There are some occupations that will be exempted from the increase, including those on the health and care visas route, and workers in national pay scale occupations. The Home Secretary confirmed on 30 January 2024 that the planned increase will come into force on 4 April 2024.
