For many Nigerians, this is good news as they can easily apply to the Great Britain without bureaucratic bottlenecks.
Britain is launching a new visa system to make it easier for individuals in science, research and technology workers to move to Britain from anywhere in the world. The country’s Chancellor of the Exchequer made this known on Wednesday.
Rishi Sunak told lawmakers that he hoped to make Britain the best place in the world for high-growth, innovative companies and to make the four nations internationally competitive.
“I’m announcing ambitious visa reform aimed at highly skilled migrants,” he said.
According to him, this includes a new unsponsored points-based visa to attract the best and most promising international talent in science, research and tech.
The visa programme also include new, improved visa processes for scale-ups and entrepreneurs, and radically simplified bureaucracy for high-skilled visa applications.
