EU immigration to be sliced by 80%’ after Brexit planned by Sajid Javid
Sajid Javid will sketch proposals to cut immigration from the European Union by up to 80% once Brexit is in place.
The Home Secretary desires to cut immigration from the region to as little as 10,000 a year by means of rigorous conditions for entry once free movement ends, as reported by the news agencies.
It is reported that Mr Javid desires to begin a “new conversation” on immigration, months after the Government came under trouble for the effect of its “hostile environment” method.
It states the Government’s long-anticipated immigration white paper, which is projected before the end of the year, will shape strategies to sanction in between 10,000 and 25,000 longstanding immigrants from the EU each year by 2025.
Fresh statistics demonstrate net migration from the EU has been declining since the vote for Brexit but still stuck at 74,000 till July 2018.
Under the expected policies to be drawn by Mr Javid, the figures of highly-skilled EU migrants arriving Britain is likely to fall from 15,000 previous year to about 11,000 a year.
In the meantime, the sum of medium-skilled workers arriving the country will fall from 18,500 to about 4,500, whereas most of those with low skills are likely not to come at all on a longstanding basis.
The modifications will also contain no cap on highly-skilled migrants migrating to the UK from anywhere in the world.
Those considered medium-skilled will be required to get at least £30,000 a year – except they are migrating for a position in exceptionally high demand with a lesser salary.
Low-skilled workers will be allowed short-term visas for a year maximum, only if they are from a country linked with a “low risk of immigration abuse”.
Furthermore, students will be permitted six months of study leave and will be allowed to apply for a skilled worker visa in the three months before the completion of their education.
According to a spokesperson: “We are going to take full control over who can come to the UK, prioritising those with the skills the UK needs rather than on the basis of which country they come from.”
