My point is if we are to treat all from overseas in the same way after Brexit then either the Indian Visa regs will have to apply to people from France or be dropped altogether. If we were to have a non discriminatory policy then entry requirements for nationals of all countries would have to be similar.
Trump is a problem??? I thought Brexiters were relying on him to do a quick and favourable trade deal with the UK.
We already discriminate between nationals from different countries. How we do that in the future is up for debate. What we can agree on is that race, religion and ethnicity should have nothing to do with it. Perhaps the relative wealth of nations is what it boils down to. If you come from a wealthy country you are less likely to overstay. Is it your belief that entry requirements should be uniform for nationals of all countries outside the EU?
Of course Trump is a problem and I hope to God that he doesn't get re-elected, but I'm not confident.
If there is to be a non discriminatory entry policy then it has to be the same for all. Once Britain has left the EU people from it will have no special status will they?
I don't know if differences are entirely due to wealth , for example Qatari citizens require a Visa to enter the UK.
How do they decide on the criteria? I don't know. I do know that discrimination between nationals from one nation and another does happen and will presumably continue. I can't see a way round that. By not discriminating I meant, of course, on grounds of ethnicity, race and religion. "Unfair discrimination" if you like.
