Increased salary threshold for Global Business Mobility Routes

09 Apr 2024, 34 mins ago

The UK government has announced significant changes to immigration rules effective from 4 April, 2024, which impact various work routes, including Global Business Mobility. Among these changes are increases in salary thresholds aimed at different categories of workers.

Recent UK immigration rule changes have affected the salary threshold requirements for Global Business Mobility Visas (GBM). There are five routes with GBM that allow overseas businesses to establish or transfer employees to UK-based organisations. The new immigration changes affect three of these five routes.

The following changes in Global Business Mobility Routes came into effect on 4 April 2024:

Senior or Specialist Workers: The general salary threshold rises from £45,800 to £48,500.

Graduate Trainees: The general salary threshold increases from £24,220 to £25,410.

Scale-Up Route: The general salary threshold is raised from £34,600 to £36,300.

Going rates will be updated based on the latest ONS pay data for all Global Mobility routes. It is important to know the salary threshold change to ensure compliance and planning for employers and employees alike.
