  • Financial requirements include savings of at least GBP 2,530, and applicants should not have dependent children under 18.

Application Process:

  • Successful submissions will be chosen randomly through the ballot system.
  • Results will be emailed to applicants within two weeks of the ballot closing.
  • Applicants have up to 90 days from the email date to apply for the visa.
  • The visa application process includes submitting biometrics and paying the visa application fee, which includes the immigration health surcharge.
  • The visa fee is £298 (₹31,110).
  • Post-visa approval, applicants must travel to the UK within six months.


  • The initiative, established in May 2021, is part of the UK-India Mobility and Migration Partnership, which includes the Young Professionals Scheme.
