US Visa model for Australians post-Brexit: Julie Bishop

A US Visa type can be likely a model for 1000s of skilled Australians to be employed in the UK post-Brexit said the Foreign Minister of Australia Julie Bishop. The government of Australia has reiterated that it is keen for improved visa arrangements for Australians. This is along with any discussions for free trade with the UK.

The Foreign Minister of Australia Julie Bishop is on a visit to London. Ms. Bishop said that the reciprocal US E-3 Visa for Australians is an instance for achieving free movement. This visa was agreed between the US and Australia in 2005 while finalizing a trade deal, she added.

Julie Bishop said that Australia is hopeful of having the same discussion with the UK, as quoted by the ABC Net AU. It is during the negotiations for a free trade deal that we expect to agree for a visa too, she added. An option, a model, and a precedent already exist from the base in our negotiations with the UK, said the Minister.

The US E-3 visa is exclusively offered to the Australian citizens. It is also available to their kids and spouses. This visa is reserved for individuals employed in an expert job in the US. 10,000+ such visas are offered annually. However, this cap has never even come close to being achieved.

The UK has constantly been a favored destination for Australian youths. Around 12,000 availed benefit of the scheme 2 year Youth Mobility that was offered in 2016.

However, obtaining a UK visa becomes tougher for Australians after the age of 31 years. The exception is those applicants who have a UK ancestor and can often obtain employer sponsorship.
