star this property answer text <p>Tier 4 visa applications are assessed in accordance with the Immigration Rules. Applicants are treated equitably and must meet the same requirements to qualify for leave under a given Tier 4 route and type of sponsor. Nationals of countries listed in Appendix H are subject to reduced documentary requirements although they must meet the same substantive requirements as other nationals. This list is kept under review and we may add or remove countries and competent authorities based on objective criteria. Applicants intending to study at Tier 4 Visa Pilot Scheme institutions are also subject to reduced documentary requirements.</p><p>We will keep the visa application process for international students under review, with the aim of improving the customer journey both for students and their sponsoring institutions. This will include reviewing processes for conducting interviews to ensure that these are appropriately focussed and to minimise any inconvenience for applicants.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>While the government is clear that free movement will end when we leave the EU, we are aware that continued access to international talent and the ability for UK talent to tour are key concerns for the cultural and creative sectors.</p><p><br>Non-EEA musicians and artists can currently enter the UK through a range of routes. Standard visitors can be paid for their participation at Permit Free Festivals for up to six months, Permitted Paid Engagement visitors can undertake various engagements for up to one month and the Tier 5 (Creative and Sporting) route permits artists, performers and their entourage to work in the UK. Tier 5 visas are granted for up to 12 months and can be extended for up to a maximum of 2 years in the UK.</p><p><br>The Home Office has launched a year-long engagement programme on the proposals in the White Paper on our future skills-based immigration system. The Home Office is working with DCMS and creative and cultural industries throughout this process so that Government approaches policy well informed by those working in the sector.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We welcome the Knife Crime Evidence Briefing published by the College of Policing on 27 April as a valuable contribution to the response to knife crime and serious violence. The report is consistent with the evidence and approach that we set out in the Serious Violence Strategy which we published in April last year. Specifically, the briefing supports the Government’s view that tackling knife crime and serious violence cannot be solely focused on law enforcement, but it should also involve a multi-agency approach involving a wide range of sectors, including education, health, social services, housing, youth services, victim services and others. This is why we launched our consultation on a new legal duty to ensure public bodies take action to prevent serious violence on 1 April. The consultation explores how a legal duty will support effective multi-agency work. It is open to everyone to respond and can be found here <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/serious-violence-new-legal-duty-to-support-multi-agency-action." target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/serious-violence-new-legal-duty-to-support-multi-agency-action.</a> The consultation closes on 28 May.</p><p>The College of Policing briefing is consistent with the approach we are tak-ing through the £22 million Early Intervention Youth Fund, which is already supporting 29 projects delivering interventions to young people at risk of becoming involved in knife crime and serious violence. We have also launched the £200 million Youth Endowment Fund, which will be delivered over the next 10 years to support interventions with children and young people at risk of involvement in crime and violence, focusing on those most at risk to steer them away from violence and to offer them a better future. In addition, our national knife crime media campaign - #knifefree – is raising awareness of the consequences of knife crime amongst young people, and through the Offensive Weapons Bill we will be introducing new Knife Crime Prevention Orders to help the police divert young people who they know are at risk of becoming involved in knife crime, to make more positive life choices.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to transforming the response to domestic abuse.</p><p>Victims of domestic abuse are treated first and foremost as victims. Non -British victims residing in the UK are able to apply for support from authorities, many of whom will have statutory obligations to support victims.</p><p>For individuals in the UK who are married, or partners of, British or settled sponsors and who claim to be victims of abuse, there is the option of applying for immediate crisis support under the Destitute Domestic Violence Concession (DDVC).</p><p>In addition, funding has been made available to support a range of support networks. In March, a further £1,090,000 was made available specifically to be used to provide safe accommodation, and other support functions. <br> <br>We are not complacent about our responses to domestic abuse. We strive to see what more can be done. The new Domestic Abuse Bill will be the platform for delivering changes to support victims and will enable victims to have the ability and confidence to report these crimes.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
