The United Kingdom is amid the most well known immigration destinations in the world for those who wish to work and reside in an altogether new country. But the immigration system here is restrictive. The 5 tier visa system that is point based was phased in from 2008-2010 that measures candidates on different criteria designed for assessing their eligibility for either a study or work visa in the United Kingdom. The majority of the visa applications that are work related and also study visa application under Tier 4 is now done via this system. The UK government since 2010 has made a lot of changes to the immigration law in the UK for restricting immigration from outside the EEA.
