In a not-too-positive development–from the British migrants’ perspectives–London is reportedly planning to adopt a rather tough stand on the issue of welfare. As a key component of the new UK immigration clean-up the national administration is fleshing-out a plan for taking back any housing help to aliens.
In this connection, the available reports suggest that sincere efforts are on to prevent the citizens of other countries of the EU to gain British welfare assistance. The current labor is being blamed of giving millions of pounds to outsiders, via offering them housing support. Via stopping the unemployed aliens any housing help, London will help guarantee that the misuse of the national welfare arrangement is stopped, or so it is claimed.
Latest Decree to Come Into Force from April
The fresh move will become effective from the month of April 2014 even while it arrives soon after a legislation to the British Parliament as per which only those people–who are in the country for not less than three months–will have the right to gain jobless benefits. It is also being claimed that individuals may not look forward longer to just arrive in the country, and get something for being idle. The object is to check that no unjust exploitation of the British welfare system takes place.
So you are in Britain with a Tier 1 (Post Study Work) Permit or perhaps Tier 4 Student Permit, or maybe you are doing a job, or have already discovered an opportunity in the country. Regrettably, several recruiters/job-providers are powerless, and/or not ready to proffer sponsorship to the workers from abroad.
If one has found an appropriate work opportunity, he may seek and get assistance to discover a
Tier 2 sponsor before graduating to the Tier 2 (General) skilled worker permit class. The conditions are relatively easier in case the aspirant is graduating from a Tier 1 PSW or Tier 4 Student Permit (at the degree stage) to a Tier 2 Permit.
The Tier 1 (Post Study Work) Permit Class (PSW) enables global graduates of the many British universities to live in the country for a period of two years, post graduation. The PSW Permit category was made unavailable for fresh entrants during the month of April 2012. However, those with existing PSW Permits were given the permission to reside until the expiration of their permits.
