Truck drivers from India interested in UK short-term visas

Indian truck drivers are among the leading category of workers showing interest in new temporary work visas introduced by the UK to address supply shortages. Demand for the UK's short-term visa offer for heavy goods vehicle (HGV) drivers, effective from this month until February next year, was being driven up by drivers far afield rather than nearby EU countries, as was expected.

However, truck drivers from outside the EU are unlikely to have the required qualifications, which would mean further delays to addressing any immediate crisis. The HGV driver shortage, which has triggered a fuel crisis, sparked a 307% spike in interest in UK-based jobs from overseas drivers. Analysis by Indeed UK shows that this spike is coming primarily from India, the UAE, South Africa, Poland, and Nigeria.
