UK: Five year plan to revamp the work permit system

U.K. officials are planning to overhaul and simplify the country's work permit system, imposing new rules that favor highly skilled professionals and low-skilled workers from the European Union.

The new, points-based system, to be implemented over five years, would categorize workers as highly skilled, skilled, low skilled, and specialists and students; permits would be allocated based on those designations.

For example, high skilled workers such as doctors, engineers, and IT specialists would automatically qualify for a U.K. work permit with the option to stay permanently after five years.

The system would also favor low skilled workers from the European Union over those from other countries, but all low skilled workers would be required to leave the country after their permits expire.
