Einwanderer brauchen 70 Punkte um in UK arbeiten zu dürfen

July 15, 2020 - EU und Nicht-EU Arbeitnehmer werden unter Britaniens Post-Brexit Punktesystem gleich behandelt. Ein Bewerber muss mindestens 70 Punkte erreichen, um eine Einreisebewilligung zu bekommen.

Home Secretary Priti Patel announced new details of the system on Monday, including a special fast-track visa for healthcare workers.

Hundreds of thousands of people who work in Britain's publicly funded National Health Service come from abroad, and many in the sector fear post-Brexit staff shortages.

The government said social care workers will not be eligible for the special healthcare visa, drawing criticism from unions.

The UK’s new immigration rules are set to come into force on January 1, 2021 – after the Brexit transition period – immediately ending freedom of movement with the European Union.

Visa applicants must have an offer of a job on a list of eligible occupations and speak English – earning them 50 points.

There is a minimum salary requirement of £20,480.

Additional points would be awarded for meeting criteria such as holding a PhD in a subject relevant to the job, or earning a salary of at least £25,600.

Those with job offers in “shortage occupations” such as nursing and civil engineering would also be able to earn extra points.
