As per a report, a fairly debatable federal immigration plan, called the EB-5, providing the US Green Cards to some overseas investors, observed extraordinary demand last year, as the worry that an important provision of the law could end, resulted in a surge of the would-be immigrants.
Immigrating to a new country is adventurous but it is also challenging, especially if you wish to immigrate to a country like the UK. To immigrate, aspirants may have to learn new language, be ready to deal with new environment and culture. Just to avoid cultural shock, an immigrant needs to do his homework well.
Canada, also known as the Land of Milk and Honey and/or the Maple Leaf Country, is one of the best immigration destinations for skilled workers. Every year, a large number of people immigrate to the country. Apart from strong growing economy, there are many other factors that encourage trained workers to live and work in the nation.
In the year 2014, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) envisaged and implemented an exception immigration programme that made historic turnaround in the Canadian immigration. For the very first time, the immigration programme gave only priority to skills for the movement. The programme made headlines with 45,000 immigrations in 2015 with another 4,000 applicants still waiting to be answered over their call. If you want to know something historic, this definitely is the answer.
A not-to-happy India has lately registered a formal complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) against Washington DC, claiming that the decision of the US to increase the cost of the Temporary Work Visa, on the H1B and the L1 Visas, will negatively impact Indian IT firms in a rather big manner.
In a not-too-positive development–from the perspectives of the Indian migrants settled in the UK—a large number of Indians in the nation could get hit by a new regulation from next month even as under which they may be extradited from the nation, in case they do not take home at least 35,000 British Pounds per annum.
The improvements will impact the specialists residing and doing a job in the UK on a Tier-2 Visa who get less than 35,000 Pounds per annum, at the close of 5 years of their stay in the nation. Allegedly, London changed the settlement laws in 2012 to smash the connection between arriving to do a job in the country and staying there on a permanent basis.
Over the years Indian experts have formed the biggest class of people given such visas. As per the UK’s Office of National Statistics (ONS), out of the 55,589 Tier-2 Sponsored Visa petitions cleared during 2014-2015, close-to 78% were for the Indian professionals (31,058).
Despite the fact that the precise number of those affected by the salary threshold conditions continues to be pretty uncertain, it is likely to be anywhere from 30,000 to 40,000 employees.
Sharing his thoughts over the issue, an Indian marketing assistant–who reportedly shifted to the country in the month of November 2011 on a Tier-2 Visa–reportedly stated that London is his home, and he has worked pretty hard, and made a life in the nation with his family. He added that he feels exceptionally discouraged by the system even while throwing out tax-paying individuals is anything but an answer to the immigration catastrophe.
Significantly, the visa is given on the basis of a “certificate of sponsorship” given to the Britain- based groups to appoint such professionals from outside the European Union (EU), and enables them an utmost of six years’ stay.
At the close of 5 years, these employees were in a position to submit an application for the prized Permanent Residency (PR) or “Indefinite Leave to Remain” (ILR) in the nation. However, from the next month onwards, it becomes mandatory that those making the cut for the ILR under the 5-year class also show they take home not less than 35,000 Pounds per annum or be subjected to the prospect of a denial which denotes they would have no option except to go back to their home nation or eventually be exiled, in case they refuse to depart willingly.
The other chief groups hired under the class include the nationals of the US, Australia, Japan, and China. But, the administration continues to be unbending that the amendments are vital to deal with the nation’s immigration difficulties.
Allegedly, earlier it has been very easy for some firms to usher-in employees from abroad rather than to take the long-term resolution to train the needed personnel in the country itself.
The UK does not need an introduction. It consists of four popular states–Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, and Wales. Among the four regions, England is the largest country followed by Scotland.
