Prospects For Increased Visas For Indians In The UkTheresa May, Prime Minister of UK has given indication that Indian Visas may get increased if the Indian Government support them on the issue of migrants staying more than the period of their visa. It should be taken into account that the Indian Student Fraternity has been facing a lot of problem regarding the processing of their visas to the UK. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the British Government to take immediate actions for the immigration of Indian students to the UK.

In the Business Leaders Summit held in New Delhi, UK industrialist Sir James Dyson has favored and backed the smoother visa process of Indian visas to UK. British Premier’s visit to India for three days also concentrated on the same issue. Easy policies for bilateral trade between these countries post Brexit policy was also the focus of this visit.

Theresa May, however, assured that nine out of ten Indian students are being approved for the UK visa. India demanded for the lessening of eligibility criteria and rise in number of visas approved. Britain also agreed on cost deduction which will surely ensure the increased number of visa processing for the UK.

In return of these favors, India would have to help UK for the return of Indians who do not have legal Visas. Indian PM Narendra Modi revealed that the current visa policy of UK resulted in 50% decrease of Indian students approaching the UK.

Chief of Cobra beer, Lord Bilimora has also demanded of multiple entry visa of less than £100 should be extended to Indians too. Sir James also informed that it would reflect in the shortage of engineers in UK by almost one million. UK has only one third of the engineers which means there is a huge transformation required for the Visa policies, and make the visa process even more amiable for students from India to attract better talents.
