UK Science and Immigration: Why the UK needs an Internationally Competitive Visa Offer

UK Visa

We partnered with The Royal Society to produce a report discussing why the UK needs an internationally competitive immigration offer to ensure talented people from overseas contribute to its world-leading science. 

For this report, Fragomen collated visa information for science occupations across 16 countries and reported on time frames, costs and the potential to move to permanent residency for visa categories that scientists would commonly use. The Royal Society used that information to draw comparisons and comment on how attractive the UK is and published their report today. The recommendation is that the UK must look at its approach to immigration in the science sector to remain competitive.
