The article reports on the decision of the British Border Agency to stop accepting high skilled migrant applications made overseas beginning April 2011. The agency's decision aims to avoid exceeding the interim cap set on non-European Economic Area (EEA) immigration by the administration. The administration also plans to terminate the post study work Tier 1 route. The ruling will force business enterprises to register as sponsors for the employment of non-EEA nationals from April.
