New visas for young Indian professionals amid crackdown on illegal immigrants

Up to 3,000 young Indians can live and work in Britain for two years under a deal struck to return more illegal immigrants from the UK.

A “bespoke route for young professionals will allow 18 to 30 year olds to work and live in the other country for up to 24 months”, the Home Office said.

Indian foreign ministry official Sandeep Chakravorty said the move would boost employment chances for 3,000 young Indian professionals annually.

But the Mobility and Migration Agreement also includes new measures to accelerate the removal of illegal migrants and tackle organised immigration crime.
