UK Tightens Visa Rules For Techies

The UK government has decided to increase yearly salary threshold for technology professionals applying for visa by 44 per cent. Under the new visa rules announced last evening by the UK Home Office, anyone applying after November 24 under the Tier 2 intra-company transfer (ICT) category would be required to meet a higher salary threshold requirement of £30,000 from the earlier £pounds.

“The broader sentiment in the move is not pro-outsourcing. It is inward-looking and veers towards protectionism, ” says Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst and CEO, Greyhound Research.
