Study Abroad In Immigration friendly Countries – BW Businessworld

Countries like Canada, Germany, Australia and New Zealand are eager to have skilled immigrants come to their countries for further education and eventual settlement

Many students are reluctant to study abroad because of worries about things like cost, family obligations and a lack of support systems at home, despite the fact that making the decision to immigrate could prove to be one of the most life-changing moments of their lives. But being familiar with seven countries that are immigration-friendly for Indian students will help in planning for admission and a visa.
Top immigration-friendly countries
At present, an estimated 11,33,749 Indian students are currently enrolled in schools outside of India. Approximately 18.69 per cent are located in the United States, 8.14 per cent in Australia and 4.89 per cent in the United Kingdom. A large portion of Indian students who plan to study abroad also hope to find work and ultimately obtain citizenship in the host country. Immigrating to some countries can be a difficult and lengthy process. Getting permanent resident status in the United States, for instance, could take decades due to the country’s convoluted immigration and PR policies. 
Conversely, countries like Canada, Germany, Australia and New Zealand are eager to have skilled immigrants come to their countries for further education and eventual settlement. Canada has the highest score (8.46) on the Highest Migration Acceptance Index, followed by New Zealand (8.32) and Australia (8.28).
Canada
Canada’s open-door policy is unparalleled. Canada granted permanent resident status to 97.5 per cent of international graduate students who applied in 2021, according to a study published by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Graduates from abroad can work in Canada for between eight months and three years with the help of the Canada Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWP).
The Canada Experience Class, Provincial Nominee Programs and the Quebec Experience Programs are just a few of the many categories and pathways that can help someone gain permanent resident status in Canada (CEC). Spending at least 730 days in Canada over the course of the 5-year period is required to maintain PR status.
Germany
Study abroad programmes in Germany are extremely common. Germany’s excellent quality of life is reflected in its high ranking (4th) on the Human Development Index (HDI) 2022 study. Graduates from universities outside of Germany are eligible to apply for a work visa valid for 18 months after graduation. After two years of working in Germany with a valid work permit, EU Blue Card holders are eligible to apply for permanent residency status.
Australia
The Commitment to Development Index (CDI) rankings for 2021 place Australia in the top three countries for adhering to three criteria: the acceptance of migrants from developing countries, the ease with which they are integrated and whether or not the country is a signatory to international migration conventions. Depending on your profession and level of education, you may be eligible for one of several pathways to permanent residency in Australia.
For instance, international students who have recently graduated may apply for a Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) to remain in the country for an additional two to four years in order to work. The 487 Regional Sponsored Visa is another option for gaining permanent residency in exchange for working in a designated rural or suburban area for a minimum of three years.
New Zealand
Because of its high levels of prosperity, education and longevity, New Zealand has been given a high Human Development Index (HDI) ranking of fourteen. Graduates from outside of New Zealand can apply for a Post Study Work Visa, which will allow them to stay and work in the country for a period of time ranging from one to three years. Citizenship can be applied for after five years of continuous residence in the country.
United Kingdom
The UK is another popular location for students to attend school. With an HDI of 0.932, the United Kingdom is an attractive option for people looking to make a permanent move abroad due to its friendly culture and comfortable standard of living. Long-awaited changes to the Graduate Visa programme were implemented recently, allowing international students to work or look for work after completing their degrees (in two or three years, respectively, for PhD students). This is a huge step forward for the government to loosen its immigration restrictions. To qualify for permanent residency in the United Kingdom, non-UK citizens must physically reside there for at least five years. With a declining birthrate, an ageing population and a more diverse population, developed countries present enormous opportunities for Indian talent.
