Tier 2 (General) interim limit – new guidance for employers

The UK Border Agency has published guidance for the interim limit on Tier 2 (General) certificates of sponsorship, which comes into effect today.

19 July 2010

All sponsors affected by the introduction of the interim limit will receive a letter detailing their allocation and how it has been calculated. The guidance can be found as an addendum to the Tier 2 and Tier 5 sponsor guidance.

The interim limit will be replaced by a permanent limit in April 2011. The Home Office are currently holding a consultation on the form that this permanent limit should take.
