Labour market access

On 6 April 2011, the British government raised the requirements to quailfy for a permanent settlement permit.
 
Under the new regime, the UK Border Agency requires applicants for permanent settlement to receive wages higher than listed minimum salaries. Prior to the change, no such requirement existed.
 
From 31 October 2011, the UK Border Agency demands further evidence that documents "appropriate pay" of the applicants. In addition to the originally necessary employer's confirmation, applying migrants now must provide a payslip and a personal bank or building society statement. Applications without these additional documents may be rejected.
