Updates to Immigration Law in 2024

Wednesday 3rd April 2024

Join us on Wednesday 3rd April 0800 – 0830 for our next Breakfast Briefing, on the topic of Updates to Immigration Law in 2024, presented by Amie Trainor and 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.

The statement of changes to the immigration rules, which will contain the detail of the changes, is due to be laid before parliament on 14 March 2024. This statement is also expected to remove the 20% salary reduction on the going rate applied to occupations contained on the Shortage Occupation List.
