NASSCOM expresses support for UK immigration changes

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

The National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) expressed its support for the new UK points-based system (PBS) which is due to go begin in November, reports The Economic Times.

The international global company based in India has 250 member companies around the world, including the UK.  The company has told reporters the new PBS system will make the immigration process for employees more streamlined, efficient, and simplified. 

"This is very critical given the UK Home office's announcement on October 1, 2008 being the last date of applications and November 24, 2008 as the date when the new system goes live,” said a statement from NASSCOM.

As part of the new PBS system, employees from outside the European Economic Area who are being transferred within companies to the UK will need to apply for a UK work permit and earn “points” to support their application.  Points can be earned on the basis of ability, age, experience and the level of need within that particular job sector.

The UK Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in UK visa and immigration services.
