UK PM Rishi Sunak green lights new Indian youth visa scheme

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Wednesday green lit a new youth mobility partnership scheme that will offer 3,000 visas to 18-30-year-old degree-educated Indians every year to live and work in the UK for up to two years.

The reciprocal scheme, which will also involve British nationals living and working in India, was signed as part of the UK-India Migration and Mobility Partnership (MMP) last year and will now be formally launched in early 2023.

The scheme was launched by Sunak as part of the UK’s Indo-Pacific focus at the G20 Summit in Bali, where he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi  to confirm the new bespoke route and which Downing Street said makes India the first visa-national country to benefit from such a scheme.
