UK rules out EU-wide deal on work and study visas for young people

The UK government has dismissed the idea of reaching a comprehensive EU-wide agreement to facilitate the exchange of young people for work and study purposes over extended durations. This decision came in response to the European Commission's announcement of its intention to engage in negotiations with EU member states regarding a unified approach to collaboration with the UK in this regard.

While the European Commission proposed the initiation of talks aimed at establishing a cohesive strategy with the UK, the British government has opted against pursuing a collective agreement with the EU. Instead, it prefers pursuing tailored agreements with individual nations within the bloc.

The proposed initiative pertains to a Youth Mobility Scheme, which would enable individuals aged 18 to 30 to engage in work or study activities for up to four years in the territories of participating nations. Additionally, the scheme outlines provisions concerning tuition fees.

However, the EU's proposal clarified that it does not intend to grant UK citizens unrestricted access to the Schengen zone. Rather, it suggests confining individuals to the specific countries for which their visa is issued.

A spokesperson for the UK government emphasized that there are no plans to implement an EU-wide Youth Mobility Scheme, underscoring the cessation of free movement within the EU. Instead, the government highlights existing successful schemes in 13 countries, including Australia and New Zealand. The government remains receptive to negotiating similar agreements with international partners, including individual EU member states, provided they align with the UK's interests and promote the skills and opportunities of its youth.

This decision reflects the UK's stance on immigration policy following its departure from the EU, emphasizing the pursuit of tailored arrangements that serve the nation's interests while fostering collaboration with international partners.
