The limit which was introduced in the year 2011, restricts the number of visas issued to the non EU skilled employees with the employment offers to just around 20,700.

The committee report also said that this transaction means that the limit has play a very less role in minimizing the migration.

The monthly cap has never been violated, but when the immigration is hitting the limit, the applications for the visa becomes the matter to the income threshold, that the report highlighted it was inappropriately soaring and out of reach of many nurses.
