    • Easier Short-Term UK Visas may become a reality

      During Prime Minister Theresa May’s visit, India hopes to reach an agreement with the United Kingdom to provide Indian students, businessmen and academicians with short term visas. Acting High Commissioner to the UK Dinesh Patnaik hopes to see these developments come to light after the Prime Minister’s first bilateral visit to India. This will the Theresa May’s first diplomatic visit outside the European Union since she has been appointed Prime Minister of the UK. India has a strong trade relationship with the UK and the recent Brexit would require the UK to look outside the European Union for strong trade ties. The short term visas would facilitate an ease in business activities between the two countries as the UK is shifting a large portion of its jobs to India. In the next 3 to 4 months as many as 2,000 jobs are expected to move to India. India hopes to secure the same concessions offered to Chinese for the UK visa, which is, 6 month to 2 year visas at 87 pounds.
