IMMIGRATION/LAW/DEPORTATION

United Kingdom: Non-EU migrants earning less than £35,000 to be deported

uk-to-deport-nigerians-earning-less-than-£35000-from-april-2016From next month, non-EU migrants in the UK earning less than £35,000 will be deported. The new Home Office policy, which comes into force on April 6, applies to all overseas workers who have been in the UK for five years on a Tier 2 visa. If they can’t prove that they’re earning more than £35,000, they will be denied settlement and will face deportation. Teachers, IT professionals and journalists could all be badly affected. A petition launched at the beginning of the year called for the threshold to be reconsidered – it gathered more than 100,000 signatures and was debated in parliament last week. So what’s actually changing?


To settle in the UK as a skilled worker, non-EU migrants need to have a Tier 2 visa. For this you need: An offer for a job in the UK that pays at least £20,800 Have had at least £945 in your bank account for 90 days A certificate of sponsorship from your employer (which can cost between £536 and £1,476) To pay a £200 annual healthcare surcharge To prove your English language proficiency ALSO READ  There Is A Dislocation In The Nigerian Economy - Kachikwu, Oil Minister After five years on this visa, skilled workers are able to apply for ‘indefinite leave to remain’ – and this is what is about to change.

 From April, anyone applying for indefinite leave to remain will need to earn at least £35,000. Nurses are temporarily exempt from this threshold, along with PhD-level jobs and any professions that have been on the official ‘shortage occupation list’ while the person has been living here. However, the earnings threshold could be applied to migrant nurses in the future. Teachers aren’t exempt (unless they are professors in certain disciplines).

 Even David Cameron’s mum has lost her job because of Tory cuts In fact, the Home Office’s own analysis of the policy in 2012 revealed that the new threshold would have a significant impact on teachers, IT professionals and marketing managers.

What if I’ve been in the UK for more than five years? Then you won’t be deported – the new rule doesn’t apply to anyone who entered the country on a Tier 2 visa on or before April 5 2011. I’ve been here for a decade, will I be deported? No – as long as you’ve been living here for 10 continuous years, you can apply for indefinite leave to remain with no salary threshold.

So if you came here in 2006 as a student visa, then moved directly onto a skilled workers’ visa, you can apply to settle here regardless of how much you earn. The only condition is that you can’t have left the UK for more than 180 days at a time, or 540 days in total. I’m here on a marriage visa, will I have to leave? No, the changes only apply to people on a Tier 2 visa.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
