Rishi Sunak approves major visa initiative for Indians after meeting with PM Modi

Rishi Sunak approves major visa initiative for Indians: The approval of 3,000 visas per year for young professionals from India to work in the UK has been given by UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. The UK-India Migration and Mobility Partnership, which was established last year, is strong, according to the British government, which claimed that India is the first visa-national country to benefit from it.

Major visa initiative for Indians approved: Key Points

  • The UK-India Young Professionals Scheme, which offers 3,000 places to degree-educated Indian citizens between the ages of 18 and 30 to come to the UK and live and work there for up to two years.
  • After meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the first time since the first British Prime Minister of Indian descent took office, Mr. Sunak made this announcement in the Downing Street readout a few hours later.

Benefits of major visa initiative:

  • Under the new UK-India Young Professionals Scheme, the UK will provide 3,000 visas each year to degree-educated Indian citizens between the ages of 18 and 30 who wish to visit the country and work there for up to two years. It will be a reciprocal system.
  • Compared to practically every other nation in the Indo-Pacific region, the UK has more connections to India. India accounts for over a quarter of all foreign students in the UK, and Indian investment in the country sustains 95,000 jobs nationwide.
  • India and the UK are now negotiating a trade agreement; if it is approved, it will mark the first time India has done business with a European nation.
  • The trade agreement will strengthen the 24 billion pound trading relationship between the UK and India and enable the UK to take advantage of the potential afforded by India’s expanding economy.
  • The British government claimed that in addition to the mobility agreement with India, it is also enhancing its capacity to deport immigration offenders.
