Britain's temporary cap on non-EU immigration from Monday

LONDON: Britain will enforce a temporary cap on non-EU immigration into the country starting Monday, July 19, which will put a limit on the number of applications being made.

The interim limit of 24,100 applications will be applied from July 19 to April 2011, when a permanent cap is due to come into force. The intention of enforcing the temporary cap is to prevent a rush of applicants before the permanent cap.

The interim limit will be further divided into monthly limits. Once the monthly limit has been reached, no further applications will be considered till the next month. Applications received will be held in a queue in order of the date of application till the following month's limit is opened.
