UK Work Permits Ltd will, in the coming weeks, be using this section of the website to discuss the upcoming Points-Based System, due to be implemented in 2008. In line with our current focus, we will be focusing firstly on Tier 1 (replacement for the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme) and Tier 2 (which will replace the current Business and Commercial work permit scheme) following with an analysis of the other tiers 3-5.
