    Read techUK Head of Policy for Skills, Innovation and Digital Strategy Vinous Ali's comment on the Government's announcement regarding the relaxation of Tier 2 visas.

Commenting on news that the Home Office will announce a relaxation of Tier 2 visa rules, Vinous Ali, Head of Policy at techUK, said:

“The announcement on Tier 2 visas is hugely welcome. The tech sector in the UK is going from strength to strength. For this is to continue, we need an immigration system that works. Tech workers are some of the most mobile and in-demand professionals in the world. If the UK wants to be a global hub for tech then it needs to be open and attractive to the best tech talent.  

We hope this announcement marks a new approach from the Home Secretary – one where the needs of business and our economy come ahead of arbitrary caps and targets. The next challenge will be ensuring we get our future migration system right and we stand ready to work with Government to achieve that goal.”
