The UK Government is planning to offer 2 year UK Work visas to EU immigrants after Brexit and this will be applicable to EU immigrants below 30 years of age. A review commissioned by the government has said that young EU immigrants will have a longer working life. They will thus make an enhanced contribution to the public finances of the UK, adds the report.
Amber Rudd the UK Home Secretary had asked the Migration Advisory Committee to assess the benefits and economic costs of EU immigration. The committee then published the call to evidence report for the same.
The report advises that UK Work visas must be offered to young immigrants from EU similar to the ones offered in New Zealand, Canada, and Australia. The 2 year UK Work visas must be offered to immigrants in the age between 30 – 18. These visas will authorize them to work and live in the UK after Brexit, as quoted by the Workpermit.
The call to evidence report adds that there are several reasons to offer 2 year UK Work visas to young immigrants from EU. As they have a longer working life, they have more chances of making an increased net positive impact to the public finances. This will also enable them to assimilate more successfully into the UK, elaborates the report.
Migration Advisory Committee report further explains that immigrants can be offered points on par with the immigration system of Australia. This will further enhance their chances of arriving at the UK. It is not for the first time that points based immigration system on par with Australia is being suggested in the UK.
The points based system is nothing alien to the UK. The UK Tier 2 Visas are based on a point system. It screens the immigrants outside the EU for their eligibility to enter the UK. The report also suggests that young EU immigrants can also accept lesser salary ceilings to better their chances of settling in the UK.
