The 2018 Migration Advisory Committee report
• Immigration Rules would not distinguish between EU citizens and non-EU citizens after Brexit and the end of free movement;
• The removal of the Resident Labour Market Test for the recruitment of migrant workers;
• For skilled jobs, a salary threshold that the MAC said should be set at £30,000 per year for skilled Tier 2 (General) Visa applicants. The MAC did not recommend any regional variations in salary thresholds to take into account costs of living in different regions.
The government White Paper
The 2020 Migration Advisory Committee report
• The salary threshold; and
• Whether there should be a single salary threshold or regional variations; and
• Whether there should be a salary threshold in combination with a “going rate for the job” requirement or simply a “going rate for the job” requirement; and
• Whether there should be exemptions to salary thresholds for migrants who are taking up shortage occupation jobs or in public service.
• Some of the concerns expressed about current and anticipated post Brexit skill shortages and the potential impact on the UK economy; and
• Representations over how a UK wide £30,000 migrant salary requirement would work in practice in a post Brexit world, with the end of free movement and the capture of EU migrant workers into Immigration control systems.
