Information on Tier 2 entry clearance visa applications broken down by outcome (grants, refusals, withdrawals, lapsed) is published in the quarterly Immigration Statistics Visas volume 1 table vi_01_q at https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/immigration-statistics-year-ending-march-2018.

On Friday 15 June, the Government laid amended Immigration Rules altering the allocation of places under the Tier 2 (General) cap. This will come into effect on 6 July. The change is intended to be temporary and will be kept under review.
