Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick has proposed either banning foreign workers from bringing family members to the UK or allowing them to come with one relative.

This move follows the UK’s announcement of a dependant visa ban for foreign students from January 2024. Barclay expressed support for lowering numbers, particularly for dependants in the care sector, where most foreign care workers, predominantly from Nigeria, India, and Zimbabwe, may be affected.
