David Beckham, the Beatles, Red Buses, Fish and Chips, Windsor Castle – All these have one thing in common – they all belong to the UK. Made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, UK is a popular destination for immigrants. It is in fact a hot spot for immigrants from India. Why?
The UK has a highly developed social market economy. By GDP this is the fifth-largest national economy. As the birthplace of the industrial revolution, it has a highly developed industrial structure. While the Covid-19 pandemic has caused much damage to the British economy, UK is doggedly pushing ahead with plans for deploying the coronavirus vaccine. Economists say that this could result in the UK economy outperforming those of other countries later this year.
There is a shortage of skilled workers across disciplines. Some experts estimate that the ‘low carbon workforce’ will be three times what it is now by 2030. The wide range of job opportunities available makes UK a very inviting destination.
The National Health Services (NHS) ensures a high quality of free health care for its citizens. An excellent educational system ensures quality education, and those looking for higher education have some of the most reputed Universities in the world right there. The UK passport is highly valued worldwide.
There are more than 1.5 million Indians living in the UK. In fact, there are large Indian communities such as in Leicester and Wolverhampton. The multicultural society makes it easier for an immigrant to integrate into.
Emerald green hills, beautiful blue skies, rolling meadows, picturesque woodlands, we cannot even begin to describe the beauty of the English countryside. English literature is replete with evidence of how the landscape has inspired poets and writers.
UK has shifted to a point-based immigration system that works best for Indians. This means that skills, professions, qualifications, age, and finances are awarded certain points thus ensuring that those best qualified can enter the country faster. Fabral Overseas can help you work out your score and guide you in how you can maximise it.
Generally, those desirous of immigration would need to move to UK temporarily and then apply for ‘Indefinite Leave to Remain’ (ILR). There are financial, professional, and legal criteria to be met depending on the route of migration chosen. Fabral Overseas will help you ensure that you choose the best route.
Several documents are required during the visa process and thereafter. Character and health certificates are among those required at different stages of the process. Our counsellors at Fabral Overseas will help you obtain the necessary documents and put them together so that your process moves ahead without hinderance.
You will be required to take a language proficiency test, IELTS or TOEFL. Fabral Overseas will help you and guide you so that you can take the test successfully and obtain the required score at these tests.
