The new parliamentary committee in the UK on Visas and Immigration will be headed by Keith Vaz, the longest serving Indian-origin MP. Keith Vaz has been a Member of Parliament in the UK for last three decades. Conservative MP Bob Blackman will be the Vice Chair of the committee and the Secretary will be a Scottish National MP.
The decline in the number of Indian students coming to the UK for higher education is worrisome said, Vaz. This will be scrutinized as to why this trend has emerged. We look forward that the new parliamentary committee in the UK on Visas and Immigration will decrease red tape, added Vaz.
The new parliamentary committee in the UK will scrutinize several issues related to Visas and Immigration. As the UK prepares to exit from the EU, the issue of immigration is at the forefront, as quoted by the Times of India.
The UK Home Office is still burdened with hundreds of thousands of case backlogs. Apart from these, there are thousands of citizens of India-origin who are Portuguese nationals and currently residing in the UK. These also need immediate clarification of their statuses said, Keith Vaz.
Keith Vaz, the longest serving Indian-origin MP said that it is very important to take control of the Visas and Immigration scenario in the UK. There have been concerns that decisions for visas are now approved at New Delhi in the place of Mumbai. Apart from this, it has also been reported that after the UK visa is applied for in Sylhet in Bangladesh, the visas are granted in New Delhi, added Vaz.
In the Brexit referendum held in June 2016, the UK chose to quit the EU with 52% of the voters calling it quits.
