The Chief Minister’s department is asking Islanders to say how much they think people moving to the Island should be charged. A consultation paper proposes a series of tariffs, which include one-off payments of £5,000 for super-wealthy immigrants and £75 for those moving to Jersey as unqualified workers when they first arrive.
Those who are already in the Island, but have been here for less than five years, could have to pay the £75.
It is also proposed that those currently known as J-category – essentially employed – Islanders in the private sector should pay £200 a year.
The charges are part of wider moves to crack down on immigration and preserve jobs and housing for locally qualified people.
