February 2019 – Minimum Income Requirement

February 2019 – Minimum Income Requirement

Thank you to those who have contacted me about the Minimum Income Requirement.

I appreciate your concern over this issue. As you may know, individuals must fulfil a range of criteria before being granted entry to, or leave to remain in, the UK. As there are multiple kinds of visa, these criteria can differ, but common requirements include the ability to support oneself, a good knowledge of the English language and the absence of particular criminal convictions.

All applications are assessed on a case by case basis, according to their individual merits and against the part of the Immigration Rules which relates to the purpose for which they are seeking entry.
