UK PM Rishi Sunak Approves 3000 Visas for Indian Professionals
Rishi Sunak approved 3000 UK visa for eligible Indian professionals under the UK-India Young Professional scheme.
NEW DELHI: The Prime Minister of UK, Rishi Sunak approved 3000 UK visas for Indians. Under the UK-India Young Professional Scheme, Indians from the age group of 18-30 can acquire the UK visa if they get a diploma or a three year course of degree along with the knowledge of language of the host country. The young Indian professionals can go and work in the United Kingdoms for at least two years with the visa.
According to the British government, India is the first visa-national country to get highly benefitted by the scheme of Youth Mobility. Under the UK-India Young Professional Scheme, 3000 visas will be provided each year to Indian professionals between age group of 18-30, with the desired qualification and degree.
Rishi Sunak declared about the idea after having a conversation with the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Both of the dignitaries met at the 17th G20 summit in Indonesia, Bali. This was their first meeting after Rishi Sunak became the Prime Minister in October.
It is to be mentioned that UK and India are on a way for a trade agreement as well, and if it gets approved by both the parties, it will be the first deal between India and an European Nation. Unlike the Youth Mobility Scheme, which has no requirement for English language or a specified diploma, The UK-India Young Professional Scheme demands for this requirements. The Indians should know how to speak in English and must have a three year course degree in hand.
According to sources, there are probable chances that a person should have a particular job offer to get the visa in hand. The requirements are not yet finalised. With millions of Indian nationals fulfilling the desired requirements for the visa, the method or procedure to pick a few people among them would likely be a lottery for different places. The newly introduced scheme is going to mark a turning point between both the nations.
