According to the new age requirements to qualify under the Points Based System, the UK Border Agency has confirmed that the age limit has lowered for the entry of spouses and partners in the UK.
With the respect to the new rules, it is mandatory for the husband, wife and the main applicant (or the civil partner of the PBS applicant) that the minimum age for the entry in the United Kingdom should be eighteen and above.
In addition, the UK Border Agency has also made certain changes in the UK Immigration policy and has revised certain rules for employers and education providers who sponsor the applicants (who are planning to work and study). The changes would be put into action from October 2009. Some of the changes are:
- Alteration on students’ maintenance requirements
- Changes to the guidance for points-based system sponsors

The rules and regulations for the Immigration and Visa procedures keep on changing. That is why it would always be a wise decision to hire the services of an Immigration expert and stay updated with all the news happening in the Immigration world.
