Changes to the UK Immigration Rules

02 March 2015

On the 25 February 2015, the UK Government announced changes to the UK Immigration Rules, the majority of which are due to come into effect on 6 April 2015.

In this note we describe the implications of the changes most affecting high-net-worth individuals (the Tier 1 (Investor), Tier 1 (Entrepreneur), Parent of a Child at School, Visitor and Overseas Domestic Worker categories) as well as the removal of the right of appeal for all immigration refusal decisions, which will be replaced by a system of administrative review.
