star this property answer text <p>The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) advises the Government on economic issues relating to migration.<br><br>On 1 July 2013 the MAC published a &quot;Report on the economic and labour market impacts of tier 1 entrepreneur and investor migrants to the UK&quot; which it had commissioned from the Migration Observatory. The report made a number of findings, although it concluded that it was too early to make a full assessment of the economic contribution of the two routes without further research. The report is available on the gov.uk website at:<br><br><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/economic-and-labour-market-impacts-tier-1-entrepreneur-and-investor-migrants" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/economic-and-labour-market-impacts-tier-1-entrepreneur-and-investor-migrants</a><br><br>More recently, on 25 February 2014 the MAC published its own report, &quot;Tier 1 (Investor) route: investment thresholds and economic benefits&quot; in response to a Government commission. The MAC concluded that the direct investment required by the route is of little or no benefit, but there is some benefit from indirect spending by investors and their families in the UK (although this is difficult to quantify). The report is available on the gov.uk website at:<br><br><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-investment-limits-and-economic-benefits-of-the-tier-1-investor-route-feb-2014" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-investment-limits-and-economic-benefits-of-the-tier-1-investor-route-feb-2014</a><br><br>The Government keeps all routes under review and is currently considering its response to the MAC's report on the Tier 1 (Investor) route.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>Decisions regarding the location of our visa application centres, and the <br>places in which the applications are decided, are based on a number of <br>different factors, including geography, security issues, distribution of <br>demand, political and economic impacts, as well as the financial cost. The <br>Home Office uses commercial partners to help run its network of visa <br>application centres, which are the customer-facing end of the service. Under <br>new contracts which came into effect on 1 April, we will have 340 visa <br>application points in 142 countries around the world. Applications submitted at visa <br>application centres are then sent to one of our 32 decision-making hubs for <br>consideration. <br><br>On the Consular side, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) supports <br>British nationals through the Diplomatic network of 220 Posts around the world, in 170 <br>countries. They also have a network of 230 Honorary Consuls who provide <br>support in places where the UK is not otherwise represented. Having consular <br>partners present in countries where the UK is not represented ensures British <br>nationals have immediate access to assistance. There are only three countries <br>in the world where there is no in country consular representation by the UK or <br>any of our main consular partners (EU, Australia, Canada, US or New Zealand).</p><p> </p><p>These are Palau, Sao Tome &amp; Principe and Tuvalu. In these cases, UK Travel <br>Advice instructs British nationals to seek assistance when needed through the <br>nearest country with British diplomatic representation: Philippines, Angola and <br>Fiji respectively. The FCO currently advise against all travel to Syria and <br>warn British nationals who travel there that the FCO will not be able to <br>provide them with any assistance. The FCO also advise against all but <br>essential travel to Iran and advise British nationals to seek assistance from <br>any EU Member State present in the country.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
