Scotland Skilled Immigrants
An independent Scotland is considering encouraging skilled immigrants to meet economic targets. After the referendum on its future that is scheduled to happen in September 2014, it will be decided whether Scotland will become independent or not.

If it becomes independent then the nation requires an additional 24,000 people per year to fulfill its economic goals, according to Alex Salmond, the first minister of Scotland.

Scotland government has estimated the level in terms of net immigration, which is the difference between the number of people settling and the number of people leaving in Scotland. This figure would be necessary to improve tax revenues and manage the public expenses until 2030.

Plans to encourage immigration were formerly publicized in the independence White Paper of Scotland. Ministers of the country intend to initiate the implementation of Australian points based system, if the people of Scotland vote ‘yes’.

Foreign students will also be be encourages to work in Scotland by attaining special visas. Independence is also expected to temp expat Scots to return to Scotland.

Mr. Salmond, said that the figure of 24,000 was just 2,000 higher in comparison to the average yearly net immigration that took place between 2001 and 2011 and can be practically achieved.
