Default Britain, Canada and Australia announce new restrictions on high skilled immigration

Recently I started looking other options in India, Britain, Canada and Australia.

Here is what I found just in last 1 week.


Britain puts new cap on non-European high skilled immigration
United Kingdom, Immigration, Coalition Government Announces Temporary Migration Cap - Newland Chase - 30/06/2010, Government & Public Sector, Labour and Employment, Immigration
Non-EU immigration to the UK: the statistics visualised | UK news | guardian.co.uk

The federal government is seeking a limit on the total number of applications for Canada immigration to 20,000 annually
Canada to welcome high skilled and wealthy immigrants | Canada Updates

Australia announced new visa ruler to target Indians
New visa rules not targeting Indians: Oz envoy - World News - IBNLive

This may be the result of global economic slowdown. But China and India are allowing more immigration. Now high skill immigration is a new measure of future economic growth.

You got that right! I have been trying to keep up with these changes myself and found it very interesting that these 3 countries all made these sweeping changes all within a few days of time!

Default India or USA are best options.

Now matter what , no other country has balls or guts to accept huge number of immigrants like US does, yes do you huge volume it is slow but the govt. is more aware of the fact that high skilled immigrants add to the benefit of their country compared to Canada (conservatives in liberal skin- because they have undocumented race based limitation), Britian(high skilled immigrants are usually colored therefore anything colored is considered not British) and Australia (how can a decent high skilled immigrant be accepted by bunch of outback thugs).

Please observe all these countries' immigration policies in this day of economic downturn, all of them are actively shutting their doors except USA (comparatively). I think USA is more closer for me as a home after India, I got misled by Canada but after what happened in their Alberta Province's AINP program for H1b holders I realised that Canadian pasture is really not green it is just an illusion.

It is true that US is a far better country for immigrants - it is a lot easier to assimilate in here than anywhere else in the world. US not fixing its immigration system will only make the brightest stay in the home country!!
Cannot fault them either for staying, who wants to be stuck in the gc system with no end in sight?

Wow. Did not see this coming. I am searching for information for Canadian PR and stumbled upon these links. Does anyone know if Canada has opened its PR system?

I am specifically trying to find out how much time does it take to apply for Canadian PR. I've B.Tech from IIT Mumbai with 11 years experience. If I apply for Canadian PR from US, can anyone share time estimates?

Waiting for US appliation is a waste of time and I have given up.

Thank You in advance -
