Summary of Regional Visas
A unique immigration solution?
Could regional visas close the post-Brexit “skill gap” that UK companies fear?
Voltaire may have said, “Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers,” but UK politicians and business leaders want answers regarding Brexit’s impact on the local economy. A regional visa scheme could calm the concerns of business leaders who fear that they won’t be able to hire the talent they need. In a report commissioned by the City of London, professional services network PwC explains and explores the ins and outs of two potential schemes that could benefit those UK regions and sectors that depend on foreign workers. getAbstract recommends this analysis primarily to UK business leaders and policy makers.
In this summary, you will learn
- How a regional visa scheme could help close the UK’s skills gap,
- How such a scheme would operate and
- When authorities would issue short-term versus long-term visas.
