The Points Based System Calculator has now been removed from the UK Visas and Immigration Website.
The Points Based System Calculator is an assessment tool which helps applicants identify their eligibility to meet the points requirements for a work or study visa. It may only be used for Points Based System visa applications under Tiers 1, 2, 4 and 5.
Due to the varying complexities and evolution of the UK immigration rules, particularly in the most recent years. The Points Based System Calculator no longer serves a significant purpose for the assessment of verifying an applicant under the Points Based System.
Currently there is no further information as to whether UK Visas and Immigration will employ a more complex model, and therefore it has been suggested applicants will need to navigate the UKVI website resources to ensure they meet the eligibility criteria of the visa.
'If you need to find out whether you are eligible for a Tier 1 visa please contact us directly, we will review your eligibility and calculate the necessary points required to meet the criteria of the Points Based System'
Whether you are an aged migrant who has successfully worked their way through the system or you’re a first time applicant, navigating the UKVI website can be a daunting prospect particularly in the coming months, therefore please ensure you seek advice from a regulated UK immigration consultant or a solicitor specialising in UK immigration law.
