After CaSE published the FOI figures showing that in Dec-Mar the UK refused visas for 200 teachers 400 engineers 1200 tech 1500 doctors 360 healthcare workers with job offers due to Tier 2 visa cap, there has been headline news coverage of this issue. Sustained and coordinated pressure from CaSE and others raised the profile of the impact of continued refusals resulting in the amendment announced by the Government. Full comment, analysis, data and calls below.
