Are you an Indian holding a Phd in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) discipline? If so, getting a United Kingdom visa could become easier for you starting next year. That is because, even if your salary is below the minimum threshold set by the UK government in a proposed new regime, there are a few concessions.
These concessions will make you eligible for immigration under new rules that will kick-in from January 1, 2021.
This is one of the many new regulations that the UK government has proposed in its attempt to attract talent after exiting the European Union (EU) on January 31, 2020. Following this, a new set of rules will come into place which would end free movement of people.
The UK government will introduce an Immigration Bill to bring in a firm and fair points-based system to attract high-skilled workers.
