The Sectors Based Scheme quota for 2004-05 is scheduled to operate until 31 May 2005.

As previously announced on 21 January 2005, the SBS pilot is currently the subject of a comprehensive review. Ministers are considering the outcome of this review and an announcement about the future of the pilot will be made shortly.

Pending that further announcement, Work Permits (UK) will continue to accept applications under the current quota. All existing restrictions remain in place, including the 20% limit on the number of SBS permits issued to a single nationality for each of the sectors.
