Labour market access

 On 15 October 2015, the UK added nurses to the list of shortage occupations, giving thus priority to non-EEA nationals applying for work visas to work in the United Kingdom. The move came after the country has continuously reported a shortage of nurses.
The first visas were processed in December 2015.
