New Visa Agreement Suggested Between Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom
Australians and New Zealanders should be free to live and work in the UK as long as they wish. This was announced in the last Commonwealth report. The new visa arrangements should make it easier and cheaper for Aussies and Kiwis to move to the United Kingdom.
The scheme will be based on the trans-Tasman agreement between Australia and New Zealand and will allow any Australian or New Zealander who want to travel, live and work in the UK to get a free visa.
The same should apply to British citizens who want to work in Australia or New Zealand.
The same program should be extended to Canadians as well because these countries share the same language, culture, legal systems and all are highly developed economies.
This visa program is perhaps an attempt of UK Immigration to respond to the decreased number of immigrants into Britain from Australia, Canada and New Zealand dropped to less than 30,000 in 2011 compared to 70,000 back in 2004.
A Commonwealth-wide business visa system is to be introduced based on the Asian business card which will also include fast-track passport lanes at UK airports.
The report also recommended the extending of the Youth Mobility visa to more Commonwealth countries.
