    UK Bans Emigrating Health And Care Workers From Bringing In Dependents

    The Government of the United Kingdom has barred emigrating health and care workers from bringing along dependants.

    The UK Home Office made this known in a statement published on the government’s website on Monday March 11, 2024.

    It described the development as a new law “to cut migration and tackle care worker visa abuse,” stating that a disproportionate 120,000 dependants accompanied 100,000 workers to the country in 2023.

    “Care providers in England acting as sponsors for migrants will also be required to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – the industry regulator for Health and Social Care – in order to crack down on worker exploitation and abuse within the sector,” the statement reads in part.

    “It forms part of a wider package of measures, which is being implemented as soon as possible, which means a total of 300,000 people who were eligible to come to the UK last year would now not be able to do so.”
