Revolution in UK immigration law
This brief article explains the new system for employing overseas worked (such as those from America and other non EU countries)

It does have implications for those who employ non UK residents on archaeology projects.

BAJR was working with individuals in AMerica to provide a simple guide.. but it looks like this guide will be out of date before even published...

Has anyone been involved in this/asked to register?

Quote:quote:The most substantial changes in UK immigration law for over 30 years will be introduced by the British Government by way of a rolling programme starting in the first quarter of 2008 and continuing for the next 18 months.

The British Government is introducing an Australian-style Points System for all immigration other than family settlement cases.

Quote:quote:Tier 2 which will be introduced in the third quarter of 2008. This new Tier will replace the existing Work Permit Scheme. During the first part of 2008 UK employers will be asked to register in order to be in a position to issue sponsorship certificates for prospective employees. Employers who are admitted to the Register will be able to issue Sponsorship Certificates for their employees, and will be trusted by the Home Office to comply with all conditions e.g. the carrying out of a residence labour test in appropriate cases, subject to a review by a team of Compliance Officers who will undertake investigations to check compliance by employers. Failure to comply is likely to lead to removal from the Register.
