11th May 2010: Wish to immigrate to the UK? Apply now.
The next few days will see the reaching of an agreement for the formation of a new Government. But no one really knows what the immigration policy of the new Government is going to be, because of the inherent differences in their opinion on the issue.

As of now, it is clear the Conservatives intend to place a numerical cap on the number of immigrants allowed to enter the UK from outside the EU.
The Labour Party, on the other hand, intends to continue carrying out changes to the immigration system.
The Liberal Democrats have proposed amnesty of sorts for illegal migrant workers in the country for more than 10 years, and a point based system for distributing skilled migrant workers to certain parts of the country.
