On 24 November 2016 the following changes will come into effect.
• The salary threshold for Tier 2 (ICT) short-term applicants has been increased to £30,000 p.a. Please note that this sub-category will close in April 2017.
• The salary threshold for Tier 2 (ICT) Graduate Trainee goes down to £23,000 p.a.
• The Tier 2 (ICT) Skills transfer sub-category has now closed.
In March 2016 the MAC Report recommended that the Immigration Health Surcharge should be rolled out to Tier 2 (ICT) applicants this autumn, but as far as we can see no actual change has been announced as yet, so we are hopeful that this recommendation has been withdrawn.
