The UK is one of the World’s most popular immigration destinations for people wishing to live and work in a new country. However, the UK’s immigration system is restrictive. From 2008 to 2010 the UK’s five tier, points-based visa system was phased in, which measures applicants against various criteria designed to assess their eligibility for a UK work or study visa. Most work-related visa applications, as well as Tier 4 study visa applications, are now made through this system.
Since 2010 the UK government has made a series of changes to UK immigration law in order to restrict immigration to the UK, especially from outside of the EEA.
If you already live in the UK, you may be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain. After a few years, you may even be able to apply for Naturalization. UK Immigration Visas, for permanent migration to the UK. UK Family Visas, for immigrating to the UK based on your relationship to an eligible UK citizen.
