The British PM Theresa May has rejected the point based model of immigration to control the European migration. In a recent statement, May denied the allegations that she has gone soft on immigration.
She reiterated that people supported Brexit in order to control the immigration and the point based model shall no way allow the government to restrain the same.
Brexit Vote needs to be respected
Though, May supported staying in EU, however, at the same time, she reaffirmed that the Brexit Vote must be respected. She further suggested that the controlling the free movement of EU nationals into UK would be the alert point, while dealing with the European Union in future.
No Australian-style point based Immigration System
Speaking to media earlier this month, May clearly rejected the proposal of following the Australian-style point based system for allowing the skilled and unskilled workers from EU and other countries, coming to UK every year. As per her, this type of immigration system would allow anyone in the country if they fulfill the requirements, instead of giving the ultimate control to the government. In fact, implementing the restrain on Student visa had been exceedingly successful measures in terms of decreasing the immigration in the country.
Speaking to media during the G20 summit earlier this month, she advocated a foolproof immigration system for UK. May said, "I want a system where the government is able to decide who comes into the country - I think that's what the British people want. A points-based system means that people come in automatically if they just meet the criteria.”
Need to curb the abuse in the system as well
Mrs. May has a comprehensive view on the UK immigration system, which she has revealed time and again. She has also stated earlier that we need to look in to the wide range of issues associated with this problem. It’s not just about controlling the system via rules; we also need to disallow the abuse in the system and handling those individuals, who are found in the country illegally. She also gave indications that the EU nationals will go on with their rights of living and working in UK post Brexit. May said, “People wanted to see an ability to be able to control the movement of people from the European Union. And obviously that's what I say, not free movement as it has been in the past".
Hence, it’s clear that Australian-style point based immigration system is certainly not the UK’s cup of tea at the moment and this is the reason that alternate system is being explored to control the immigration of EU citizens in the country.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them.

The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
