UK Announces New Work Visa For Indians Aged Till 30 Yrs: 3000 Positions Open For Indians!

At the seventeenth meeting of Group of Twenty, the G20 summit from Nov 15-16, 2022 held in Bali, Indonesia, the Prime Ministers of UK and India, Rishi Sunak and Narendra Modi met for the first time after the former assumed the office in October 2022.

Post this summit, the new government in UK has announced the ‘UK-India Young Professionals Scheme’, which is a reciprocal scheme earmarked to rollout in 2023, under which young professionals from the UK and India will be offered with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a professional and cultural exchange.

The professionals will lie under the age group of 18-30 years.

“Today (Nov 16) the UK-India Young Professionals Scheme was confirmed, offering 3,000 places to 18–30 year-old degree educated Indian nationals to come to the UK to live and work for up to two years,” as per Rishi Sunak’s official Twitter handle @10DowningStreet.

According to the UK Prime Minister’s Office, India is the first country to benefit from such a programme, which highlighted the strength of the UK-India Migration and Mobility Partnership that was agreed upon last year.

The UK PM also said, “I know first-hand the incredible value of the deep cultural and historic ties we have with India. I am pleased that even more of India’s brightest young people will now have the opportunity to experience all that life in the UK has to offer – and vice-versa – making our economies and societies richer.”

Further, the Indo-Pacific is increasingly crucial for our security and our prosperity. It is teeming with dynamic and fast-growing economies, and the next decade will be defined by what happens in this region, Sunak added.
