Applications for US visas down by 70%

The number of people who are withdrawing their visa applications for the US has dropped by nearly 70%, say immigration agencies and lawyers based in Chandigarh. US had in fact offered almost 900,000 visas to Indians in 2014 and there is likely to be drastic cut in the number of visas that will be issued to the Indians this year, as quoted by the Times of India. An associate member of bar in Canada, UK and the USA, Kuldip Singh who possesses more than 45 years in immigration law has said that on a day to day basis he is receiving almost 100200 applicants and around 400500 e-mail queries regarding changing their destination to either New Zealand, Australia or Canada. Kuldip went on to describe the passage of a Bill in which the American president had banned the entry of people from seven countries, as "arbitrary and unjustified". A civil engineering student at State University of New York, Rushil Verma, had earlier planned to settle in the US after his studies. However, he has changed his mind now. "It's not on my mind anymore. I have many Sikh friends here and their parents are now planning to shift to Canada. They don't want to live here anymore. I will not be surprised if there is a dip in the number of Indian students applying to US universities next academic year," he said. Chandigarh based immigration consultancy firm IDP’s official has confirmed that there has been a decline in the visa applications by students who planned to study in the US. He added that students now prefer Germany, Australia and New Zealand instead of the US. The students are also worried that Trump might be send them back home after a while, explained the official. Capability Developer at the Chandigarh based The Chopras Sapna Hundal has said that several students are withdrawing their applications for US study visa in the middle of the process of submitting the applications. This is unprecedented, added Sapna. A student from Amritsar Nitin has also conveyed similar opinion that he no more aspires to study in the US and is looking for alternate destinations. In fact Indians who are already in the US are also edgy as Aditi Sharma said that she had moved to the US recently with her husband employed in the IT firm but they are now not sure whether they should return to India or stay back in the US.

UK visas urgently needed employee Imm...

The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) says that the UK urgently needs immigrants because young Brits won’t relocate to areas where they are needed to fill jobs. The group claims that young people in the UK are reluctant to do certain types of work such as caring for the elderly, therefore migrants represent the ‘best bet’ for filling skills gaps. At present, the visa regime in the UK permits entry of highly skilled overseas immigrants through the Tier 2 visa and Tier 2 sponsorship license system. Nationals from the EEA and EU can arrive in the UK and be engaged in any nature of jobs that include low-skill occupations. Carolyn Fairbairn, the Director General of Confederation of British Industry has demanded that the Members of British Parliament must keep the borders of the nation open for overseas immigrants as they are very important to cater to the high demand for labor in the UK. She also added that there are many regions in the UK where unemployment was really very high, as quoted by the Work permit. The post-Brexit debate on immigration framework has been focused on continuing the inflow of highly skilled overseas immigrants to the UK. The Confederation of British Industry has meanwhile argued that workers with lower skills are equally crucial to the labour market of Britain in order to cater to vocations such as taking care of the elderly. Fairburn in her address to the select committee for Brexit, the nineteen members’ influential group that consisted of the House of Lords members said that Britain had an aging population that demanded people who would love to take care of them. It was high time that theory is kept aside and analyze the aspects that are straining the economy of the UK, explained Fairburn. Longworth responded to the issues raised by Fairburn and asked as to why nationals from the EU were being hired for these vocations and declared that the youth unemployment rate in the UK was shameful. UK could claim to be in a position to say no to the overseas workers. It is very apparent that there will be a need for skilled overseas immigrants for specific vocation on a short term basis in scenarios wherein it is not possible to access workers from the native UK population.
