Garth Coates Comments: Do 2014 Figures Show the Highest Levels of Immigration to Date?


London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/23/2015 -- Recent figures speculated by the home office highlight a significant rise in immigration levels over the course of 2014 when compared to 2013. For example, it was approximated that 641, 0000 immigrants entered the UK in 2014, believed to be the highest ever annual figure. This has led to much comment and reflection from specialists within Immigration law, including Garth Coates.

Furthermore, the figures show that this increase in immigration may have a significant relationship with working and employment. Whilst 70,000 people immigrated into the UK for work in 2013, in 2014, 284,000 entered for the same reason. This significant rise in immigration for work could be seen as a considerable gain for the UK economy and an increasingly diversified and skilled workforce.

"The statistics suggest that much of the increase in immigration is concerned with work opportunities," a spokesperson told us "As the UK sees many skilled migrants and students coming to the UK to share their knowledge base and apply their area of specialisation. In turn, it is essential that all those who are entering the UK, whether for employment or otherwise, do so with the appropriate visa. For example, this can include a visa for skilled workers, and the tier of visa ultimately approximates to reasons for entry. Therefore, knowing and keeping aware of the most up-to-date legal information within immigration is important.

In turn, it is ultimately essential that all legal implications are sorted, in order to add to the positives immigration can bring. Thus whether you are an immigrant yourself or have a family member or employee ina situation where they want legal advice regarding their immigration status, it is always best to seek the advice of a professional. We are always prepared to offer comprehensive immigration advice and hope that other solicitors follow suit."
