The visa scheme will be available to the age group of 18- to 30-year-old degree-educated Indian nationals as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in a professional and cultural exchange programme. As per a report by 10 Downing Street the proceedings will get underway early in 2023.

India will be the first country to benefit  from such a scheme. “It gives strength to the UK-India Migration and Mobility Partnership signed last year,” the UK Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.

The visa scheme was confirmed after a brief meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his UK counterpart, Rishi Sunak, on the sidelines of the G20 Summit, which has been progressing in Indonesia’s Bali. This was the first meeting between the two leaders since Sunak assumed the role of Prime Minister of the UK.

“Prime Ministers @narendramodi and @RishiSunak in conversation during the first day of the @g20org Summit in Bali,” PM Modi’s Office said in a tweet.

Sunak said in a statement that the “Indo-Pacific is increasingly crucial for our security and our prosperity.” “It is teeming with dynamic and fast-growing economies, and the next decade will be defined by what happens in this region.”

The UK has been negotiating a trade deal with India; if it materializes, it will be the first deal of this kind for India with a European nation. The trade deal would build on the UK-India trading relationship, already worth £24 billion, and it will give the UK a chance to take advantage of the opportunities that the growing Indian economy has been providing.
