The Immigration Bill 2015-16 was given Royal Assent and on 12 May 2016 it became the Immigration Act 2016. The Immigration Act will introduce new sanctions on illegal working, prevent illegal migrants accessing services and introduce new measures to enforce immigration laws.

The Immigration Act 2016 will:

  • Introduce new sanctions on illegal workers and rogue employers
  • Provide better co-ordination of regulators that enforce workers’ rights
  • Prevent illegal migrants in the UK from accessing housing, driving licences and bank accounts
  • Introduce new measures to make it easier to enforce immigration laws and remove illegal migrants

Measures in the act will be implemented over the coming months.

We will keep you updated on further developments.
