Filipino Caregivers in UK Have New Visa Hurdle

Filipino caregivers in the United Kingdom face a new immigration rule that specifies a minimum hourly wage for caregivers seeking permanent residence, reports Foreign caregivers must be receiving an hourly wage of at least £7.02 to be eligible to apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain visas. The new policy aims to ensure that foreign caregivers receive the proper salary and reduce the number of foreign workers working illegally in the UK. Overseas Filipino workers in the UK met with British lawmakers last month to protest the new law.
