star this property answer text <p>Our family reunion policy allows immediate family members of those granted protection here to reunite with them. The Immigration Rules also provide for relatives with protection in the UK to sponsor children in serious and</p><p>compelling circumstances and the Mandate resettlement scheme allows those recognised by the UNCHR as refugees to join close family members here in the UK.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, there is provision in the policy to grant visas outside the Rules in exceptional circumstances, which caters for family members who otherwise do not qualify under the Rules.</p><p> </p><p>However, there is no provision in the Rules for children with refugee status in the UK to sponsor family members to join them. We believe this would create additional motives for more children to be encouraged, or even forced, to leave their family, and risk hazardous journeys hoping to sponsor relatives later. This would play into the hands of criminal gangs who exploit vulnerable people, and goes against our wider safeguarding responsibilities. The best interests of children are reflected in remaining with their families, claiming</p><p>asylum in the first safe country they reach – that is the fastest route to safety – and relying on resettlement schemes to travel safely.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Tier 2 (General) visa route is intended to fill gaps in the UK labour market and is designed to serve the national interest by ensuring that employers look first to the UK resident labour market before recruiting from overseas. The route is capped at 20,700 places a year and the criteria for entry to the route is set following advice from the independent Migration Advisory Committee. Places are allocated on a monthly basis, with the highest priority being given to jobs in national shortage, followed by PhD-level occupations, graduate level jobs and then by salary from highest to lowest, in line with those that provide the greatest economic benefit to the UK. No visas have been refused for those seeking to come to the UK to undertake a post which the Migration Advisory Committee has determined should be on the shortage occupation list.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to monitor the operation of the Tier 2 visa route to ensure that it balances enabling the brightest and best migrants to work in the UK with our commitment to reducing net migration.</p>
