Britain sets new visa rules for arrivals during 2024

It is anticipated that there will be a surge in applications prior to the new regulations going into force in April.

Rishi Sunak has been informed that since there has been a surge in the number of visa applications submitted prior to the implementation of the government's limitations in the spring, there is a high probability that the net migration rate will increase before the next election.

In a statement released yesterday, the Home Office stated that the majority of the proposed reforms would be implemented in the spring and detailed the specifics of the proposals to reduce immigration by about 300,000.

It has been brought to the attention of The Times that officials from the Home Office have cautioned that if the specifics were announced many months before they went into effect, it would result in an influx of applications from individuals who are attempting to beat the deadline.

It is anticipated that net migration will increase before the next election.

After the number of people entering the country through net migration reached an all-time high of 745,000 in the previous year, Sunak outlined earlier this month his five-point plan to reduce immigration in an effort to reassure Conservative voters that the numbers will decrease by the time of the next election.

However, the Office of National Figures will not publish its figures until the end of November, which is likely to be after the general election. These statistics will reveal how the changes have influenced the numbers for spring and subsequent months.

A government source said: "Instead, we are likely to see an increase in net migration before the election because of the perverse incentive these changes create for people to get their applications in before the cutoff point in the spring."

In the year 2024, migrants are awaiting new visa rulings from the British government.

During the time that the changes were announced on December 4, Robert Jenrick, who was serving as the minister of immigration at the time, took the advice of authorities into consideration and requested that the adjustments be implemented immediately. In the end, Sunak prevailed over him.

He cautioned that if the reforms were to be delayed until April, it would result in a "fire sale" of visa applications at that time.

Migrants await new British visa decisions in 2024.

A provision that will be implemented in the spring will prevent foreign care workers from bringing family members, sometimes known as dependents, into the United Kingdom. The Home Office anticipates that this measure will cut the number of dependents by approximately 120,000 each year.

The administration anticipates that the increase in the minimum income criterion for skilled workers, which will go from £26,200 to £38,700 in the spring, will result in a reduction of 15,000 individuals.

The minimum income required to bring a foreign partner or spouse to the United Kingdom will increase from £18,600 to £29,000. Immigration experts anticipate that this will result in one of the most significant surges of applications before the reforms take effect in the spring.

There will also be significant rises in the immigration health surcharge, which is a fee that migrants are required to pay in order to use the National Health Service (NHS).

Madeleine Sumption, director of the Migration Observatory at the University of Oxford and a member of the independent Migration Advis­ory Committee of the government, stated that the delay in the reforms taking effect could result in an increase in the number of applications submitted.

"When policy changes are announced in advance, we sometimes see an increase in applications if they are well publicized," she said in an interview with The Times. However, until we examine the data, we won't be able to know for sure.

Fresh criticism was leveled at Sunak today for his decision to relax plans to more than double the minimum income required to bring a foreign partner or spouse to the United Kingdom. The necessary income will increase from £18,600 to £38,700.

On Thursday, the Home Office made a covert announcement that the adjustment would be implemented in stages, with the initial increase being limited to £29,000 in the spring. The Home Office reported that it won't reach the maximum of £38,700 until the spring of 2025.

After receiving internal warnings from officials at the Home Office that it would be subject to legal challenges on the basis of claimants' rights to a family life under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), the decision was reached to not immediately raise it to £38,700, according to Our Times' understanding.

The drop-down from the position of prime minister was seen as "a regrettable sign of weakness" by David Jones, the deputy head of the European Research Group, which is a right-wing organization. He continued by saying that because Parliament was not in session, it was unable to question ministers about the reasoning behind the action, which made the situation even more difficult.

"This decision is deeply disappointing and undermines our efforts," stated Jonathan Gullis, another Conservative MP member of parliament who is on the right-wing of the political spectrum.

However, Sumption stated that the criterion of £29,000 was still substantially more restrictive than the thresholds in other European countries. In such countries, the minimal level is more tailored to ensure that foreign nationals will not be living in poverty or reliant on state benefits as their primary source of income.

According to her, the majority of European nations that have minimum income requirements have established their limits at a range of between 10,000 and 20,000 pounds.

Additionally, Sumption cautioned that the decision to raise the threshold for the minimum income will have a disproportionately negative impact on women, given that the median average wage for female workers is less than £29,000.
