The new points-based system will be introduced from 1 January 2021.

The operation of the system will be kept under review and, as the policy statement published on 19 February makes clear, the Home Office will continue to refine it in light of experience and will consider adding further flexibility into the system including additional attributes which can be ‘traded’ against a lower salary.
