Tier 1 limits reached for October 2010

On 19 July 2010, the UK government introduced a limit on the number of visas that can be issued to overseas applicants under Tier 1 (General) of the points-based system until 31 March 2011. The limit does not affect applications from dependents, applications to switch into Tier 1 (General) from a different immigration category, or applications to extend existing Tier 1 (General) visas.

The UK Border Agency administers the limit on a monthly basis. In order to avoid breaching the visa allocation for October 2010, we will not issue any more visas for successful Tier 1 (General) applications made overseas until the limit allocation reopens on Monday 1 November 2010.
