The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has issued its annual International Migration Outlook for 2013. The report contains summaries of changes in immigration in the 34 member countries of the OECD.
The report finds that the number of people granted citizenship in the UK rose in 2012 to nearly 200,000. The number of successful asylum applications rose slightly to 21,800.
Turning to work migration, the report found that the number of migrants coming to the UK under Tier 1 of the UK's five tier points-based immigration system fell in 2012 after the government closed Tier 1 (Genera) to new applicants in April 2012. Tier 1 of the five tier system is meant to be for 'high value migrants' but the UK's Coalition government said that many people coming to the UK in this category were actually working as taxi drivers or security guards.
