New Points-based UK Immigration System is Beneficial for Indians
Students & professionals from India who are in the UK have a reason to cheer amid the dilemma brought in by the Brexit. On 19 Feb 2020, UK’s home secretary Priti Patel declared a points-based immigration system that strives at bringing the most eminent and the best talent from around the globe. The new regime, which begins 1 January 2021, would benefit science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) students and specialists from both India and China get the UK PR faster. It is in line with the immigration systems in Australia, New Zealand and Canada, which grant points to highly skilled immigrant workers based on their special skills, occupations, salaries, educational qualifications, and age.

New UK immigration System

The new UK Immigration system is a welcome development for students attending a higher education accompanied by work opportunities. A points-based system modeled in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand will support Indian students to move to the UK to study and make suitable career options. Students will have guidance to choose the programs related to the professions that are facing a skill shortage. This would encourage students to get jobs quicker and earn enough income while waiting for PR in the UK. The median time taken to get permanent residence status below the skilled points-based system in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand is smaller than a year.

Even many people in the USA have opted for Canada's Express entry route and obtained PR status in less than 6 months from their application submission date. It is a win-win situation for those because having PR status in Canada can also enjoy the freedom to live and work in the US as well.

The recommended changes to the rules of  UK immigration affirm the basic policy to support and sustain controlled migration by inviting qualified skilled talent, who are not a potential drain on public advantages. The new immigration system will handle EU and non-EU residents equally, giving preference to those with the best skills, such as scientists, academics and innovators. Though the threshold was pulled down from the earlier proposed level of 30,000 euros, it could still be a difficulty, particularly in fields that not specified on the skills list.

For global students, however, the newly announced graduate program grants an opportunity to live and work in the UK for a tenure of two years after completing their studies in the UK. The graduate program will be launched from the summer of 2021.
