Apart from adding new features to their immigration policies, the UK government has also waived off their VISA application fees, which was approximately 3000 pounds. This is applicable for those who are serving the army in UK for 6 years or more, whether they are international or local people.

These are some of the new steps taken by the UK government, such as the Youth Mobility Scheme, PSW, etc. All these are taking place primarily because post Brexit, there have been a significant labor shortage in UK and hence the UK government have taken such initiatives to fulfill such shortages.
