Points Based Calculator Switch Off
Posted on 9th March 2016 in News
The Home Office has announced the new UK VisasAndNationality service which will begin on 6th April 2016.
UK NARIC VisasAndNationality will be provided by the UK National Recognition Information Centre (UK NARIC) on behalf of the Home Office supporting individuals applying for UK visas or settlement.
The Points Based Calculator cannot be used to support immigration applications, and will go offline, from 6th April 2016.
Applicants will apply online to UK NARIC for a new ‘official UK NARIC statement’, rather than, as currently, for either a statement of comparability or an English language assessment.
From 6th April 2016, applicants requiring guidance on whether they are eligible should assess their circumstances against the criteria on the UKVI website at www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration.
Those submitting an application on or after 6th April 2016, who wish to use an overseas qualification to support their immigration application, will need to obtain a statement from UK NARIC.
DWI clients should contact their DWI advisor for further information.
