Fast-track immigration for top scientists
Boris Johnson has promised to cancel any restrictions related to visa entries for the leading scientists to counteract any fears that the reputation of the science hub in Britain could be seriously damaged by the upcoming Brexit.
The prime minister will give tasks to the Home Office and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to develop a new strategy plan for the world’s scientists’ ease of entry into Britain, starting with the employees of prestigious educational establishments and finishing with students who show great potential, for example, the students who won mathematical Olympics.
Sceptics believe that this announcement should have been made immediately after the referendum as the country has lost a lot of reputable scientists and researchers since the referendum results.
