Indians Filing less Tier 2 Visa Applications in the UK

September 2017, 09
EMAIL  Print A+
Based on the figures released by the Home Office UK, Tier 2 visa applications by Indians registered a decline. This is because of the strict UK Visa System showing a 4 percent drop in the year ending June 2017. 

People migrate to the UK based on a Tier 2 visa for skilled workers. This allows them to work for a Tier 2 Sponsorship License with a UK employer. The system is complex, and the visa process is difficult needing professional help and advice.

In the year ending June 2017, records indicated a strong presence of Indians with 29,800 sponsored Tier 2 applications accounting for 54% of the total applications sanctioned. With the government aiming at a steep cut in migrants' entry numbers, applications made by Indians fell substantially. Indian nationals are still the largest number recipients of Tier 2 visas.

Lord Gadhia, a British Peer, requested the government to consider Indian nationals favorably. These comments were made after the release of UK immigration data, from the Home Office which revealed the positive impact of Indian migration. It showed that an impressive 97% Indians made an exit before their visa expired. The compliance rate was a record. He went further to add that the government of UK, should act positively, and provide nondiscriminatory and favorable access terms, to the skilled workers.

Indians are skilled and contribute to the economy of UK, in a big way. There is an uncertainty, and a concern, among the UK companies on the issue of access to both non-EU skilled workers and workers from Europe in the present regime.

Similar to the approach of UK, in the USA also, Indians face immigration negativity and strictness, owing to the America-First policy. The IT outsourcing industry in the USA also faces testing times and challenges.
