August 2003 Changes to the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme

Building on the success of recent initiatives, the UK Government is taking further steps to facilitate migration as a source of skills and labour in the economy. To maximise the economic contribution of high-skilled migration, the Government will strengthen the Highly Skilled Migrants Programme by adjusting the threshold eligibility criteria, introducing a new category for younger applicants, and taking partners’ achievements into account in assessing individual applications. The new criteria will take effect from August 2003.
