About this course

On 4 April 2024, the UK’s work visa routes underwent significant policy changes. The minimum income requirement for sponsored workers has significantly risen, the reduced rate of pay for shortage occupations has been removed and the renowned Shortage Occupation List has been replaced with a new, much shorter, Immigration Salary List.

So what is the future for sponsoring foreign workers in the UK?

Join us for a comprehensive webinar where we’ll deliver a consolidated update on the latest changes in the UK’s work visa landscape. We’ll unpack the details of the updated financial requirements, look at the implications of the Immigration Salary List and offer insight into the shifting dynamics between employers and workers. Whether you’re advising seasoned sponsors or those new to the process, this webinar will get you up to speed with the latest developments.

Detailed but not overwhelming. The examples where good and illustrated complex parts well. The quiz at the end was very good.

Well written and exam focused.
