Sajid Javid has asked the Migrant Advisory Committee (MAC) to review and advise on salary thresholds for the future immigration system, including whether there is a case for regional salary thresholds and possible exceptions based on those starting out in a particular occupation, or because they work in a shortage occupation.

The MAC had previously recommended that the existing salary thresholds set at £30,000 for experienced workers, and £2o,8oo for new entrants and recent graduates are retained.

The MAC is expected to report back by January 2020 and the findings will likely heavily influence the salary thresholds implemented under the new immigration system.
