The United Kingdom (UK) offers a range of visas for individuals planning to visit, work, study, or settle in the country. The UK operates on a points-based system for most visa categories, known as the “UK Immigration Rules.” Under this system, applicants must meet specific requirements and accumulate enough points to be eligible for a visa. Immigrants frequently choose the UK as their new home. According to the Office for National Statistics, 145,000 individuals left the UK and 313,000 moved there in 2020. Thus, there were around 168,000 net immigrants to the UK. In 2022, 2,836,490 visas were issued.
