    can you and manofsussex confirm which version is true?
    he says the visa fee is payed by the NHS and goes on its budget and you are going with the nurses pay it so can demand higher wages.
    Sorry, I think that came out wrong, the hassle of applying for the Visa will push up wages as there would have to be a benefit of going through it.

    Saying that, all the working Visa's I have had I had to pay for, then again you would not want me as a nurse...

      The Tier 2 Immigration Skills Charge, which is £1,000 per year per employee is paid by the employer - in this case The NHS.

      The UK government could have introduced more stringent checks anytime they liked. Nothing to do with the EU.

      We have EU workers working *here* and they all have to go through the same background checks as Brits as we work with an Airline.

      They should have background checks, you are right - I believe most do - but this is not an EU lead problem - it is from the UK Government
      EU citizens dont have background checks to enter the UK, the only thing they can be flagged for when entering here is on an international arrest warrant or on a terrorist watch list.

      I believe most reputable employers will carry out their own checks anyway. Dodgy employers never will whatever law is in place and that just leaves people we let in with no job to go to. We could have been doing checks on them for decades but we haven't. No reason to believe we will start once we leave the EU.

      They do to work though, which is what we are talking about with the NHS.

      £1,000 per year, per nurse as a Tier 2 Employee as per the Immigration Skills Charge, all added to The NHS budget.
      Wow, nearly matches the 350 mill per week we were promised!

      What background checks do non-EU citizens arriving on a standard visitor visa have?

      i should imagine it varies from country to country but those coming here as tourists or for short periods etc must surely have less checks when they require a visa, rather more of a declaration of facts.
      That is the way it should be for people coming here short term,it makes the world tick over.
      If there were hoards of rampaging tourists from a particular country i would hope there would be a reassessment of their visa requirements
      people coming here long term to live and work is a different ball game all together
