Graduates from the world's top 50 non-UK institutions, including Indian students, can now travel to Britain and work there through a new High Potential Individual (HPI) visa route that was introduced in London.

Rishi Sunak and Priti Patel, Indian-origin UK Cabinet ministers, said in a joint announcement that the new "exciting" category under the post-Brexit points-based system aims to attract the "best and brightest" talent from across the world, regardless of their nationality.
