Plans for the introduction of an accelerated visa were announced Thursday by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to “the most brilliant and brilliant” minds following the end of British membership of the European Union (Brexit).
The purpose of the reform of immigration rules is to attract leading researchers and professionals from the fields of science, technology and technology to Great Britain.
According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, Boris Johnson emphasized that not only are they supporting talent already in Britain, but they want to make sure that the immigration system attracts the best minds from all over the world. The Prime Minister said he wanted the United Kingdom to remain a global scientific superpower. Science and research will continue to be supported after EU membership ends, he added.
The head of government, who has been in office since July 24, who has replaced Theresa May, has repeatedly stated that after Brexit on October 31, she wants an immigration system similar to that of Australia in order to bring in more skilled workers to Britain. According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office on Thursday, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Business Affairs will work with the scientific community to develop the new system later this year.
These include lifting the numerical limit on Tier 1 visas for special talents and expanding the number of host institutions – research institutes and universities. The possibility of canceling the obligation to have a job offer before arrival is also being explored.
