Nigerians To Be Deported From UK For Earning Less Than £35K by GurlFriend: 12:33pm On Mar 14, 2016
Nigerians, from next month, non-EU migrants in the UK earning less than £35,000 will be deported.

The new Home Office policy, which comes into force on April 6, applies to all overseas workers who have been in the UK for five years on a Tier 2 visa.

If they can’t prove that they’re earning more than £35,000, they will be denied settlement and will face deportation.

Teachers, IT professionals and journalists could all be badly affected.

A petition launched at the beginning of the year called for the threshold to be reconsidered – it gathered more than 100,000 signatures and was debated in parliament last week.

So what’s actually changing?

To settle in the UK as a skilled worker, non-EU migrants need to have a Tier 2 visa. For this you need:

An offer for a job in the UK that pays at least £20,800
Have had at least £945 in your bank account for 90 days
A certificate of sponsorship from your employer (which can cost between £536 and £1,476)
To pay a £200 annual healthcare surcharge
To prove your English language proficiency


After five years on this visa, skilled workers are able to apply for ‘indefinite leave to remain’ – and this is what is about to change.

From April, anyone applying for indefinite leave to remain will need to earn at least £35,000.

Nurses are temporarily exempt from this threshold, along with PhD-level jobs and any professions that have been on the official ‘shortage occupation list’ while the person has been living here.

However, the earnings threshold could be applied to migrant nurses in the future.

Teachers aren’t exempt (unless they are professors in certain disciplines). Even David Cameron’s mum has lost her job because of Tory cuts

In fact, the Home Office’s own analysis of the policy in 2012 revealed that the new threshold would have a significant impact on teachers, IT professionals and marketing managers.

What if I’ve been in the UK for more than five years?
Then you won’t be deported – the new rule doesn’t apply to anyone who entered the country on a Tier 2 visa on or before April 5 2011.

I’ve been here for a decade, will I be deported?
No – as long as you’ve been living here for 10 continuous years, you can apply for indefinite leave to remain with no salary threshold.

So if you came here in 2006 as a student visa, then moved directly onto a skilled workers’ visa, you can apply to settle here regardless of how much you earn.

The only condition is that you can’t have left the UK for more than 180 days at a time, or 540 days in total.

I’m here on a marriage visa, will I have to leave?

No, the changes only apply to people on a Tier 2 visa.

Hmmmmm.

Speechless.

Everywhere, everyone looks at a poor man with suspicion. What a world!

That's why we won't let Governor Elrufai's antics discourage us. We will continue to tell people about heaven. That's the only place where you are not rated based on your status.

Lay up your treasures where moth and rot cannot corrupt.
Be wise. Be saved. Be born again.

Deport ??
You haven't been to America.
You think you can wake up one day and start deporting people ??

Serial killers who killed 200 people are given a free legal representatives.
If Osama bin laden was caught alive, we is entitled to have the best lawyer in the world for free.

In America, a police cannot enter your house or search your car without a search warrant.
How do you think you can just wake up and decide to deport people.

And for your information, if there are 100 Nigerians in America, 2 are illegal.
The illegal aliens are the Mexicans and people from south, and northern american.

Do you homework
