Tier 4 students exempts from Tier 2 salary up

Not good enough but at least something government has listened from Migratory Advisory Committee. The salary threshold will increase at least £30,000 for the Non-EU migrants but this changes will not affect if anyone hire international student who has  recently graduated to a degree level course.

Also a new immigration skill charge announced £1,000 each year from the employers if the recruit Non-EU employees but again this charge does not need for the Tier 4 migrants and PhD level students. If employers decided to hire international students from UK then they will be able to save £1,000 each year for each candidate.

This is an inspiring move for foreign students. The employers will be more focused on hiring recent graduates eventually experts told. The threshold of Tier 2 migrants joining salary will remain same £20,800 (including foreign graduates) and other skilled Tier 2 visa will hike up to £25,000 p/a this autumn. The following next year it will reach up to £30,000 for new entrants.
