Immigration to Jersey up 1,500 since last year
Net immigration to Jersey increased by about 1,500 in 2015, the highest rise in more than a decade.
According to the resident population estimate by the Jersey Statistics unit, Jersey's population is now 102,700.
Senator Paul Routier, the assistant minister responsible for population, said they were reviewing licences to work on a case-by-case basis.
The total population has increased by about 1,700 since 2015 and 4,800 since the last census in 2011.
Of those 1,700 people, about 200 were due to more births than deaths.
Mr Routier said: "We need to monitor migration figures carefully, we don't know what will happen with Brexit, there could be a totally different approach.
"We need to make a judgement on what requests we get. It is very difficult to say what is going to happen in the future.
"What we do is react to businesses needs and make the right decision to each business application and I hope we are doing that."
