The Home Office does not forecast future levels of net migration due to the considerable uncertainties involved, including movements by those such as British Citizens returning or migrating from the UK, which are not affected by UK immigration controls.

The estimated impact on migration volumes of the recent changes to the immigration rules for students and skilled workers can be found in the associated published impact assessments, accessed through:
