UK to fast track Visas for foreign doctors, nurses and healthcare workers. United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a programme to fast track the visa applications for overseas doctors, nurses and other health care workers.

Johnson said this would go a long way in ensuring that the National Health System (NHS) of the United Kingdom is fully capacitated and is not suffering from a shortage of critical staff.

Under the scheme, the cost of a visa for healthcare professionals would be halved from 928 pounds ($1,190) to 464 pounds ($590), while applicants would be guaranteed a decision within two weeks.

Applicants coming to work in the NHS would receive preferential treatment with extra points under the points-based system, and no cap on numbers entering through the NHS route.

This news will not be welcomed by Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa whose government has already fired 211 doctors for going on strike demanding better pay and working conditions. The doctors are reported to be earning US$80 per month. The Mnangagwa government is threatening to fire a third of the doctors over the strike which has now gone past 60 days.
