UK May Ease Visa Rules for Indian Professionals in FTA

The United Kingdom is reportedly considering loosening visa rules for Indian professionals under its Free Trade Agreement with India. While discussions are ongoing, the UK's willingness to relax some visa requirements for Indian skilled workers has been revealed by anonymous Indian officials.

However, these potential changes are expected to be limited in scope, as immigration remains a sensitive political issue in the UK. Historically, the UK has been resistant to concessions on visa and immigration rules, largely due to concerns over controlling immigration levels, especially since the Brexit vote in 2016.

Past negotiations between India and the UK encountered obstacles, including disagreements over access for skilled Indian workers. UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman's reservations about visa relaxations further complicated matters. India has emphasized the need for both nations to honor their migration understanding and requested data on overstaying Indian business visitors.

The UK faces challenges in managing immigration, with record-high net migration and a substantial number of residence visas granted to Indian workers. Current discussions are centered on potentially offering time-limited business visas for highly skilled workers.

In recent months, the UK has implemented measures to restrict immigration and limit options for existing immigrants.

Record Number of Indian Students Choose UK for Higher Education in 2023

In the year ending June 2023, the UK witnessed a significant surge in international students, with Indian students leading the way. A total of 3,287,404 visas were granted, marking a 58% increase compared to the previous year. Of these, 498,626 were sponsored study visas, reflecting a 23% rise.

Indian students secured 142,848 of these sponsored study visas, which is a 54% increase from the previous year. This growth in Indian student visas has been consistently rising since June 2019. Following closely were Chinese nationals, with 107,670 sponsored study visas.

The majority of visas, a significant 91%, were allocated to higher education institutions, including universities. Other institutions, such as tertiary, further education, and independent schools, also benefited.

A noteworthy change was the increase in visas granted to dependents of students, rising from 17% in the previous year to 24%.

The "Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies" (CAS) system played a pivotal role in facilitating this influx, simplifying the process for students to study at approved UK institutions. Introduced in October 2020, the Student visa replaced the Tier 4 (General) Student visa, providing a streamlined pathway for students aged 16 and over to pursue their education in the UK.

UK to Raise Student and Tourist Visa Fees Effective October 4

The UK government, led by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, has announced a significant increase in visa fees, set to take effect from October 4. UK Tourist Visas for stays under six months will cost an extra ₹1,543 (£15), affecting travelers worldwide, including Indians. UK Student Visas will also become ₹13,070 (£127) more expensive for applicants globally.

The fee hike extends to work and tourist visas, with an anticipated 15% increase for most visas and at least 20% for priority visas, study visas, and certificates of sponsorship.

The increase applies to various visa categories, including health and care visas, citizenship applications, visit visas of different durations, and work and study visas.

To break it down:

UK Student Visa Fees: Rising to ₹50,428 (£490) for applicants outside the UK.
UK Tourist Visa Fees: Increasing to ₹11,835 (£115) for stays under six months.
UK Work Visa Fees: Skilled worker visa applicants will pay £718 (₹77,147) for certificates of sponsorship of three years or less.

The fee adjustments aim to support the National Health Service (NHS) and public sector wage increases, raising over £1 billion. The government argues that this is necessary as fees have not been updated to reflect rising costs.
