Improvements to Express Entry on the way

November 14, 2016—Ottawa, ON—Changes to Express Entry, which will take effect on November 19, are part of a number of improvements the Government is making on a continual basis to bring changes for a more fair and responsive immigration system that will address emerging needs and ensure long-term economic growth for the middle class.

Improvements include awarding points for job offers to eligible candidates already in Canada on Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exempt work permits, and to international students who completed their studies in Canada. In addition, more time will be allocated to candidates to submit an application for permanent residence once an invitation to apply is received.

These improvements to Express Entry support the Global Skills Strategy, contribute to Canada's economic growth, drive innovation leading to new businesses, and assists employers in meeting labour market needs.

Highly skilled immigrants, such as those who come through the Express Entry system, help strengthen Canada’s competitiveness in the global marketplace and are able to quickly contribute to Canada’s economy and society. They help create jobs, spur innovation and provide opportunities that benefit Canada’s middle class.

Denmark scraps green card but spares current holders

Current green card holders had accused Denmark of breaking its promises by threatening to retroactively apply new rules to foreign professionals who have done everything required of them under the current regulations. 

 

Those currently living under the scheme argued that it would be a “humanitarian crisis” to apply new rules to them, saying it would unfairly unravel the family and professional lives they have established in Denmark.

Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates benefit from new electronic visa waiver (EVW)

In early 2014, the UK introduced the original EVW scheme, allowing passport holders from Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to travel to the UK for a visit of up to 6 months by completing an online form at least 48 hours before departure. The scheme removed the need to give biometrics, attend a visa application centre or hand in passports in advance of travel.

Unlike the original version of EVW, which relied on passengers entering their personal information exactly as it appears on their passport, the new EVW form additionally asks passengers to upload a copy of their passport biographic data page so that details can be checked for accuracy before they travel. This has already been introduced for passport holders of Kuwait.

The new EVW also features a simpler set of questions in both English and Arabic, making it easier for users to understand the process.

To cover the costs of developing and running the new system, an administrative fee of £15 has been introduced, which is significantly lower than the cost of a UK visit visa.

Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said:

Since the introduction of the scheme in 2014, tens of thousands of travellers have benefited from using an electronic visa waiver to come to the UK, which reflects the growing importance of our relationship with the region.

The new EVW is quicker and easier to complete, while remaining secure.

We know that visitor numbers from Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are continuing to rise, and we look forward to welcoming more travellers to the UK for business and tourism.

India complains to US about visas & social security trap

The Indian government has returned to the familiar-headline making lament that supplementary visa fee slapped by the US on skilled guest worker H-1B visas are discriminatory towards Indian IT professionals, even as Washington is bent on showing that a large number of such visas are cornered by body-shoppers whose broader aim is to help Indians emigrate to America.

The sticky matter of H-1B visas once again featured in talks when finance minister Arun Jaitely met US trade representative Michael Froman to discuss a raft of contentious issues, including a “totalisation agreement“ that India has been striving for. The agreement centers on Washington returning to Indian guest workers the money they have paid into the US Social Security system, which is lost if they return to India without establishing permanent residency .

New Delhi's back of the envelope calculations is that Indian professionals have paid more than $25 billion toward the Social Security fund over the past decade even as getting permanent residency has become harder.

But successive US administrations have pushed back against the demand for an agreement that India wants to conclude similar to the one Washington has with a few other countries. As it turns out, most of them are small countries (for eg Belgium) whose workers contribute only in the millions which the US does not mind repatriation. Returning billions from the cash cow that is India, with tens of thousands of guest workers streaming into the US every year, is a different proposition for Washington.

Besides, some US interlocutors have argued, many Indian workers are only too happy to pay in to the US Social Security system because they eventually hope to become permanent residents and gain citizenship, whereupon they get Social Security benefits if they have paid for a minimum of 40 quarters (10 years) into the fund.

New Delhi is on stronger ground on the visa fee issue considering that Indian nationals are the biggest recipients of the skilled guest worker visa and are disproportionately affected by the US Congress decision to impose a special fee of up to $4,500 on H-1B and L-1 visas -popular among Indian IT companies -to fund a 911 healthcare act and biometric tracking system.

New Delhi has threatened to take the dispute to the World Trade Organisation, a decision that even some large US IT companies are backing because lack of high-skilled guest workers is not only affecting their bottomline but also pushing jobs overseas, for which also they are taking flax and facing a squeeze from the administration.

What is mystifying though is why New Delhi has not bothered to strive for a bilateral visa agreement with Washington of the kind countries such as Chile, Australia, and Singapore have for their skilled workers. Although the numbers in those cases would be much smaller than anything involving India, officials conceded that New Delhi has never explored this route despite improved ties with Washington.

Non-EU workers with less than £35k pay should return back to their country.

The British government in a new set of rules has said that non-European Union (EU) residents who earn less than £35,000 a year will be deported from the country .

The new rules, which come into effect from April 6, will mean that all skilled workers from outside the EU who have been living here for less than 10 years will need to earn at least £35,000 a year to settle permanently in the UK. However, certain jobs like nursing are exempt from the fresh regulation.

A petition to repeal the new regulations has been signed by 100,000 British citizens and was even discussed in the parliament, but the government insists the new re gulations are fair and added that the people have been given many years to prepare.

“In the past it has been too easy for some businesses to bring in workers from overseas rather than to take the long-term decision to train our workforce here at home,“ the Guardian newspaper qu oted a British Home Office spokesman as saying.

The Home Office in its impact assessment estimated that the new salary threshold will cost the British economy between £181 million and £171 million while other organisa tions cited a much higher amount of £761 million.

Importance of an Overseas Education

This truly is the age of information, an age defined by access and distraction at the same time. With a multitude of narratives and constructs thrown at the masses by individuals, corporations and governments, it is clear that it is this information overload as a result of which you find increasingly more people lacking a direction. The nature of economics has at the same time changed drastically. When one studies economics, students are taught the four factors of production. Land, Labour, Capital and Enterprise.
