The UK government is thinking of launching a short-term visa scheme that would aid in bringing in foreign employees without influencing population growth rates and addressing employment shortages in the hospitality industry.

The Home Office has reportedly begun talks with several EU nations for expanded youth mobility programmes while maintaining stable net migration rates after the UK achieved an all-time high migration rate last year, according to sources in The Times.

Specifically, the proposals would allow young people aged between 18 and 30 to work in the UK for up to two years without employer sponsorship, while being exempt from skills and applicable UK wages for current skilled people. worker flow. This means that employers can use this program to fill entry-level positions within their company.

The decision, if adopted, will help the UK’s hospitality industry, which has been hit hard by Brexit, the pandemic and the bad economy in recent years.

“Anything that can help us with the recruitment of the staff we need to get our businesses fully up and running again is welcome and will make such a difference.

He also noted that current proposals would include positions such as bartenders and waitresses, but would also be welcome to include chefs, therapists, room attendants and others. .
