UK immigration – New rules for care workers from Jan 2021

Social Workers

Social workers who satisfy the criteria of being on the shortage occupation list are eligible to apply for a UK immigration visa, under the points based program.

Registered Nurse practitioners and other Registered Professionals in medical field

Registered nurses, occupational therapists, and other registered practitioners, can apply for UK immigration, as these occupations are listed on the government’s shortage list. As a result, care givers in the United Kingdom, will be able to hire Nurses and people in other related fields from outside the country, with certain conditions. As EU has broken away from UK, all nurses from EU, will no longer be able to have free passage to UK Immigration, but will have to go through the same process and fulfil the same conditions as nurses from other countries.

  • The occupation should be listed under the shortage occupation list
  • The applicant should have a valid and relevant job offer from a licensed practitioner who is willing to sponsor them
  • The applicant should be able to speak proficiently in English, upto the required standard

The applicant will be considered from the ending of June month in 2021. Persons who have arrived in the country by 31st Dec 2020, will also be considered as eligible for the scheme under the pre-settled status. These people need to then stay in UK, for a period of five years in order to achieve settled status. Family members of these workers are also eligible for working the UK, if the satisfy other criteria, with respect to age, qualification, and proficiency in English.

Provincial Nominee Program is one of the best routes for Canadian immigration. Every province (state) in Canada has its criteria for immigration. This criterion is custom-fitted to reflect the needs and growth opportunities arising in that respective province.

A Master’s Degree translates directly into a better CRS score.

Speaking one of the country's primary languages (Eg: French for Canada) also greatly raises your chances for both visa success as well job opportunities.

If you fall under the NOC list in Canada or SOL in Australia (Occupations in demand list), it means that jobs are readily available for qualified candidates. On average, individuals earn 8 times as much salary in Canada as compared to India.
