Changes to UK Immigration

The immigration agency and UK boarder control have issued changes to the visa rules and requirements for migrants entering the United Kingdom from outside the European union. These changes are affecting many citizens of the United Kingdom who want their family to join them, but under the changes so far, this can not happen and so many are left in anguish. In 2012 a minimum earnings requirement was set up to ease what many feel is a burden on the British tax payer. The idea of having financial requirements set in place would mean less people entering the country and relying on the government, which of course would mean the tax payer funding their stay and putting more strain on the United Kingdom. 

The rules state that if a British citizen earns a minimum of £18,600 they will be eligible to sponsor their spouse to enter the country, from outside the European union. The earnings have to be proven so evidence is needed. If a British citizen also wants to sponsor their child to enter the United kingdom with their spouse the minimum financial requirements rises to £22,400 and for any other children the requirements rises again to £2,400 per child. 
These changes have been criticised by many as families are being torn apart, children living without a parent is the main concern of many. The financial requirements that can not be met is a high factor as to why many non European spouses can not legally enter the United Kingdom. The British government has come under much tension from all areas about the number of migrants entering the United Kingdom each year and so had to bring the number down, to benefit the country and stop the strain that the United Kingdom already faces.
Unfortunately many see these changes as being unfair, the rise in the minimum financial requirement being unobtainable so families and in particular the children of these families are suffering. The changes had to be made and the program designed in such a way that will make sure families entering the United Kingdom from outside the European Union do not become a burden on the British people and the United Kingdom its self. The minimum financial requirement that has been put in place will mean that the families who wish to come into the country can always financially support themselves while living in the United Kingdom. Many countries across the globe already adopt these policies.
