There is growing support for the scrapping of the Tier 2 visa cap. The cap makes the process for employers who have obtained the Tier 2 sponsor license to bring in workers living outside the UK more difficult. Migrants who applied for the Tier 2 visa while already in the UK are not affected by the restricted CoS cap for the Tier 2 visa. A report published by the Migration Advisory Committee on September 18, 2018, recommended that the visa cap is scrapped. Again, a white paper published by the government on December 19, 2018, was also in agreement. The Institute of Economic Affairs — IEA for short — also supports that the cap which determines the number of Tier 2 visas to be granted to skilled workers of non-EU origin be scrapped. The IEA believes that the cap is ‘counter-intuitive’ because its objectives debar workers who have the potential to be productive from getting into the UK. Think Tank IEA says that the cap placed on Tier 2 visas engenders unnecessary economic harm and which the country will be inflicting on itself. It was published in the IEA's report; Immigration: Picking the Low-Hanging Fruits. Dr. Kristian Niemietz who is the author of the IEA's report as well as the IEA's head of political economy, says that the UK has an overly bureaucratic and unnecessarily restrictive immigration policy which does not address the concerns of the British public on immigration.
