In recent times, UK’s British Indian Home Secretary Priti Patel launched a point-based system for the high-end skilled workers. With this system, the UK tries to target the high skilled workers like scientists, sports champions, engineers, and more from all over the globe.
The system shall commence from the 1st of January, 2021. This will also help the budding students and accomplished professionals in attaining permanent residency in the United Kingdom.
The new point-based system shall work similarly like Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Certain factors are essential for the applicant to meet.
In the policy published on the 19th of February, the government has mentioned down vital information to get a permanent residency.
- Having a job offer from an approved employer at a skilled level
- Must be fluent in the English language
The above two criteria will give you 50 points. But, for the eligibility of the visa, one needs 70 points. One of the simplest ways is to attain 20 points is by earning at least £25,600.
But, the applicant can also gain additional points for the additional qualification. For instance, for the relevant Ph.D. you’ll be getting 20 points.
