British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday that Britain's new immigration policy will be based on skills, not origin.

She added that the new British system would prioritise high-skilled workers and treat European Union citizens as the same after Brexit.

May said that even though free movement will end, the government did recognize the needs of certain sections, and will have immigration exceptions.

Interior minister, Sajid Javid, later said Britain will bring in a salary threshold for highly skilled workers' visas as part of its post-Brexit immigration system.
