Portugal Will Be the Next Hot Immigration Destination for Indian Skilled Workers
The Union Cabinet has recently signed an agreement between India and Portugal on recruiting Indian skilled professionals to live and work in Portugal. The deal would set a platform between India and Portugal on sending and accepting Indian skilled workers. The bilateral agreement will make it easier for Indian citizens to carry out professional activities in the European country. It will also ensure legal and safe migration flow based on the established procedures as per the employment contract in Portugal.
Furthermore, apart from the recruitment, Indian workers will also get the benefits given to residents in Portugal as outlined in Portuguese law. The Ministry has also emphasized that once the agreement comes to effect and Portuguese employers plan to hire Indian workers; they must notify the Employment and Vocational Training Institute (IEFP), further transit the proposal to Indian Authorities.
Benefits under the new agreement
- This agreement will add another dimension to the diplomatic relations between Portugal and India. Portugal will soon become a new destination for Indian skilled professionals seeking global relocation solutions. The agreement will specifically benefit Indians who had to return to their country due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
- The agreement will open many promising job opportunities for Indian workers.
- The Government-to-Government mechanism proposed in the agreement will ensure a smooth and hassle-free transition of workers from both countries.
- Portugal and India will ensure formal arrangements for the workers recruited in Portugal.
The new provision will also benefit high net worth investors in Portugal already on a Golden visa as they can now bring Indians to establish their companies in Portugal. Job opportunities are likely to be available in the IT, construction, and real estate sectors.
