Number of UK work visas at highest level since 2009

In the year to September 2018, the number of work-related visas - issued to workers from outside the EU - increased 5 per cent on the previous year to reach 171,679, according to Home Office statistics.

This was largely attributed to a 7 per cent rise in tier 2 visas for skilled workers, the majority of which (55 per cent) were granted to Indian nationals.
