In a partnership between UK Government and Talent Beyond Boundaries (TBB), the UK Home Office added a tentative piece of legislation to the Skilled Worker program, streamlining the immigration process for skilled worker refugees and displaced foreign nationals. Many skilled workers are often unable to apply for work authorization in the UK due to lacking required documents.
The new pilot program for Skilled Workers provides the opportunity for displaced foreign nationals and refugees to apply for work authorization.
