Q: Has conservative anti immigration laws had an impact on your plans?

In my case yes.

 

Because of Conservative UK immigration laws I am now an exile.

 

What about your country?

I thought your plans were to stay in China for the rest of your life!

 

At least, that's what you've been telling us all on here for the last few years.

The immigration laws that affect you, me & other Brits haven't changed in quite a few years. We'd both have no real issues getting our Chinese families back to the U.K. as long as we had jobs lined up.

Is that true, honestly? You can't move back with your family because of UK immigration laws?

 

What's the problem they don't take spouses anymore?

In america, the lines at the immigration office are getting smaller, so my paperwork will actually process faster for legal immigration of a spouse.

No but conservative immigration rules make sense in times of economic uncertainty. When countries don't have enough jobs for their own people, there is no point in bringing more people in. I'm all for bringing in talents and experts though, but mass immigration makes no sense nowadays. If anything, developing countries are the ones that should have open immigration policies, they are where most of the jobs are.

Should have thought ahead and got your paper work straight for you and your family. You seem to have your shit together for the foreign country you are in, should have done the same for the one you're a citizen of.

Oh, the irony!

 

Bitching about immigration laws from a country where NO-ONE can get citizenship! (if they even wanted it) The best you can get here is permanent residence...

Random has a good point. Even though most Canadians are open to immigration; exactly who gets stuck with the bill. Tax time is coming. The unemployment rate in the resource rich provinces is up which means fewer tax dollars to pay for people in a country with high unemployment.

Remember folks, it's not just a job offer you have to have. The salary requirements differ depending on how many kids you have. If, like me, you have one and one on the way then you are looking at having to find a job that will pay you 25k GBP stright off the bat. That's not the easiest thing to do. Alternatives are having a certain amount of money in your bank account for six months before you apply (in my case 51k GBP) or setting up your own business first and making the money that way. It ain't easy and we have been working on it for quite some time. (had it all lined up and ready to go until, bang, pregnant again)

I understand why the rules were put into place but it really has made things difficult for us.
