Detail

Home Office Research Report 69 provides evidence on the behaviour of migrants entering the UK immigration system for the five main routes of entry to the UK and the common pathways through the Immigration System that result in settlement.

This third report follows on from ‘The Migrant Journey’ (Achato, Eaton and Jones, 2010) and ‘The Migrant Journey: Second Report’ (Achato, Eaton and Jones, 2011), by providing new analysis on two further cohorts of migrants granted entry clearance visas in 2005 and 2006 and migrants granted settlement in 2010 and 2011. The report also provides updated estimates for the previously published 2004 and 2009 cohorts. For the first time migrants granted visit visas have been included.
