Hi How can I help?
You would need to complete 5 years as Tier 2 Migrant and need to meet the following income threshold requirements to qualify for Settlement.
Minimum Earnings Threshold for ILR
Tier 2 migrants are required to earn either the appropriate rate for the job or a gross annual salary the minimum earnings threshold (whichever is the higher) as listed below.
The minimum earning threshold for Tier 2 ILR applicants keeps on increasing every year as stated below from the period of 2018 – 2022.
Can you provide the new code?
The shortage occupation has been added on - means there is no need for the employer to do the Resident Market Test.
It is my understand you must meet the settlement threshold in order to qualify for settlement.
I would also suggest that your employer contacts the employer's helpline.
I have just double checked the guidance and it appears that there is a change. If your job is on shortage occupation list you will be exempt - Page 64 and 65! - Tier 2 Policy Guidance. You can rely on this.
The policy say you can apply and qualify!
I would ensure that your employer check as well.
I would be grateful if you could give me a positive rating by clicking on the above and press submit - thank you and good luck
