UK Launches New Global Talent Scheme to Attract More Skilled Workers

UK Home Secretary has declared the opening of a new points-based visa system, intending to bring the brightest and the greatest from the globe, including India, and cut down on the number of low-skilled workers arriving in the country.

Information About UK’s Global Talent Scheme

Named as the "Global Talent Scheme" this system will come into force from 1 Jan 2021, at the close of the transition period after the UK subsequently exited from the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. However, it will still appeal equally to both EU citizens and non-EU citizens.

The scheme declared as ‘historic moment’ by the UK Home Secretary and it is inspired by the Australian points-based immigration system. It is based upon allotting points for particular skills, salaries, qualifications, and occupations, with visas only granted to those individuals who gain adequate points.

As per the British government, skilled immigrant workers need to be able to speak in the English language to work in the UK. Aspirants will be needed to have an offer of a job and also the minimum salary limit that will be fixed at 25,600 pounds which is lower than the prior 30,000 pounds for UK Tier-2 work visas.

On the educational qualification, the candidates must be qualified up to A level or similar, instead of the degree-level according to the current rules. This is as per the UK Home Office, which is to grant higher flexibility to skilled workers and assure that the UK business has access to a broad pool of skilled workers.

Also accessible for students, the scheme would need to those preferring to study in the UK to prove that they have an offer from an accredited educational institution, and also able to support themselves financially and proficiency in  English. The system, once executed, will substitute the free movement which presently exists between the United Kingdom and the European Union. The modern system permits an unlimited number of European Union citizens to reside and work in the U.K and vice-versa, without the requirement of a visa.
