And this will enable Australians live and work in the UK. What a wonderful opportunity for Australians aspiring to work in the UK.
Australians will be glad to know that easier UK Work visa rules will facilitate them to work in the UK now.
Reversing tougher UK visa norms--Its being hoped that the latest new deal will facilitate in reversing the UK visa policy that led to discrimination against non-EU nationals. The EU norms enable European citizens a free flow in the UK for employment opportunities there.

Special status to Australians--So, a special status is being offered to Australian citizens by the UK in the latest visa policy. And this will, its being hoped, bring to an end, the restrictions for Australians wanting to come, live and work in the UK, a government source has maintained.

The number of Australians living in the UK has gone down to 26,000(as per the figures for the year 2011) from 40,000 in the year 1999. And this is being linked directly to the discriminatory UK work visa policies against Australian nationals.
