The UK has planned to end the skilled migrants cap in what is being termed as the biggest overhaul of its immigration system in the last 40 years. This will open the doors for unlimited highly skilled Indian workers to immigrate to the UK after Brexit.
Sajid Javid the UK Home Secretary published the much-awaited white paper yesterday. This outlines a fresh immigration system for the UK based on skills and talents. It does not offer importance to the nation of origin of the immigrants.
The white paper announces complete elimination of the cap on the number of UK Work Visas. The current annual cap is set at 20,700, as quoted by the Times of India. It also terminates the requirement for UK employers to conduct resident labor market test. The businesses have to advertise jobs to YK workers first as per the current test.
The Home Secretary said that the latest proposals will be the biggest transformation to the UK immigration system. This is in a generation and ends the existing dual system, said Javid. The skilled migrants cap will be removed, he added.
The new immigration system of the UK will be based on the skills approach said, Javid. This is to ensure that the best and brightest immigrants continue to arrive at the UK, elaborated the Home Secretary. This will also boost the economy, wages and productivity in eth UK, he added.
The new route for UK Skilled Visa will be open to EU and non-EU nationals equally. It will have a yearly salary ceiling in the region of 30,000 pounds. It will require employer sponsorship similar to Tier 2 Visas. It is open to workers with skills at the intermediate level and not just for graduates. A labor market test will also be not needed.
