Review of UK Sectors Based Scheme

The Sectors Based Scheme (SBS) has recently been the subject of a comprehensive review. The outcome of this review will be announced in due course.

In the meantime, until the review is complete the current SBS pilot scheme will continue to operate under its existing criteria and quota system. This includes the 20% limit on the number of SBS permits issued to a single nationality for each of the sectors. As a consequence, there will be no further hospitality permits issued to Bangladeshi nationals.
