Half a million visa grants for work, study and family show that high immigration continues apace

August 26, 2021

Alp Mehmet, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

These latest figures show half a million visas being issued for work, study and family (despite Covid travel restrictions). There is no sign that the government’s “Australian Style” system has achieved any reduction whatever. No wonder 7 in 10 of the public say that the government is handling immigration badly.
