The UK's immigration system has "for too long" focused on "low skilled workers" coming to the country, the Home Secretary said, as the Government announced plans to overhaul the rules after Brexit.
Priti Patel said the new points-based immigration system will focus on the "bright and best" coming to the UK.
The changes are designed to cut the number of low-skilled migrants entering Britain from the beginning of next year, after Brexit, but aim to make it easier for higher-skilled workers to get UK visas.
