With a simple visa modification, the UK can make the most of its EU exit

Easy visa applications for Indians working in the UK may be a big benefit of Brexit, as free trade talks continue.

In the year to June 2021, India received almost 40% of the 103,819 Tier 2 skilled worker visas awarded by the Home Office.

Streamlining the Tier 2 skilled visa procedure "makes sense", but not discriminating between skilled and unskilled labour, writes Ryan Bourne in The Telegraph.

Unobservable or potential skills of migrants may be ignored if they were given the chance to reside in Britain, according to Mr Bourne.

For Indians who fit the Government's existing standards, he argues, "we should try to minimise the costs and difficulties of commerce and job-matching between the two countries."
