Jobs ban for immigrants from outside EEA

Following the review of country's skill shortages by the Migration Advisory Committee (Mac), immigrants from outside the European Economic Area will no longer be allowed to work in the UK as chefs in takeaway restaurants, high-integrity pipe welders, airframe fitters, electricity industry site supervisors, sheep shearers, hairdressers, beauty salon managers and estate agents from April, 2011.

Only graduate-level skilled migrants will be allowed to apply to come to the UK from outside Europe.

Non-EU migrants wanting to work as chefs need graduate-level qualifications, with a minimum of five years' previous experience in a role of at least equivalent status to the one they are entering.
