UK Immigration: Plans to Launch Global Talent Visa to Scientists

Fast-tracked visa for researchers and scientists after the U.K exits from the European Union has drawn skepticism from the Liberal Democrats. Top researchers, scientists, and mathematicians will receive fast-track entry to the U.K below the new scheme declared by UK PM Boris Johnson.

Comprehensive Details About UK Global Talent Visa

The UK Global Talent visa starts on 20 Feb 2020, less than a month following Brexit which is due to take place on 31 Jan 2020. UK Global Talent visa substitutes the old UK Tier-1 "exceptional talent" visa, which approved candidates to be supported by several research and science academies.

Appellants for the old visa were limited at 2,000 per each year, but that limitation was never touched. Under the latest visa, the U.K Research & Innovation funding firm will be attached to the list of groups that are able to endorse candidates.

In this current visa, candidates will not require an offer of a job before landing in the nation and will be evaluated more immediately for settlement once the application approved.

The government of the UK has also declared £300m in funding for innovative and creative mathematical sciences research in the following 5 years, double funding for the latest Ph.Ds and an increase in maths fellowships and projects related to research.

In declaring the scheme as the nation prepares to exit from the E.U, the PM said Britain's borders would be accessible to the "most talented and creative minds in the globe" following Brexit.

He told the country has a grand history of scientific discovery, in order to direct in the field and to face the difficulties of the future we must proceed to invest in the expertise and cutting-edge research.

Priti Patel, Home Secretary told that the decisive action to increase numbers by the Global Talent path would keep the U.K at the edge of innovation.

Vacancies in National Health Service

The National Health Service has experienced a vital staff deficit since the Brexit vote, with recruits from the European Union exiting the U.K in big numbers.

Greater than 40,000 nursing positions were vacant as of January 2020. The Government of UK plans to launch an Australian-style point-based immigration approach by early 2021, to correspond with the close of Britain's transition time period with the European Union.

A recommended £30,000 minimum threshold salary for migrants has frightened businesses, who worry that they might be encountering a deficit of workers in areas such as hospitality and construction. The government of the UK is thinking about what to do on the threshold.
