    Affluent Pakistanis are taking keen interest in migrating to Britain under an upcoming scheme designed to attract the rich and mighty from around the world.

    The News can disclose that dozens of multi-millionaire Pakistanis have contacted - and even hired in some cases - leading immigration solicitors in London to prepare their cases for immigration on “super-fast track†once the relevant laws were implemented.

    A source in the Home Office confirmed that several “high-net-worth Pakistanis†had evinced great interest in shifting to Britain under the new immigration scheme, which would be implemented in April.

    The new scheme almost reverses the current stringent rules. It will provide special incentives to rich foreigners to invest in Britain and inject the much-needed cash into the recession-hit economy.

    According to the scheme, rich foreigners who could bring in £10 million for investment would be eligible for a fast-tracked permanent residency within two years - unlike five years for all categories under current rules. Those with £5 million would qualify in three years and those with £1 million would get residency in five years.

    The Conservative-Lib Dem coalition government faced growing criticism over cuts in the services sectors expenditures and job slashing. The number of jobless is about to hit 3 million as many companies are laying off staff on a daily basis. Thus, the flow of money from abroad under the immigration scheme would be a welcome boost to the stalled British economy.

    The Conservatives promised at the time of the election in May last year that they would cut immigration from hundreds of thousands to tens of thousands. The government is now planning to slash the number of foreign students to reduce net migration but this measure will hit the cash-strapped universities, dependant on international students.

    The immigration clauses relating to the wealthy are undergoing a sea change, including the time period for gaining a permanent stay in Britain being drastically slashed. To qualify for a visa, an investor migrant will have to spend six months in the country instead of current requirement of nine months.

    The individuals from countries such as India, Pakistan, Russia and those in the Middle East will take the opportunity offered by the new route to settle in Britain. There may not be a lot of Pakistanis eager to invest in the £10 million category but the number of those in £5 million and £1 million brackets could easily reach hundreds, the Home Office source said.

    Talking to The News, a London-based solicitor confirmed that he was dealing with files of six rich families from Lahore and Karachi, who intended to migrate to Britain under the new scheme. “They are not happy with the unstable situation in Pakistan and Britain is a paradise for their capital. It’s clear to see why they want to move out,†he said, while speaking on condition of anonymity.

    Another solicitor, who deals with a vast number of portfolio investors mainly from the Middle East, also confirmed that he had been approached by well-off Pakistani clients about the new immigration rules.

    Fraz Butt of Saracens Solicitors, Marble Arch, London told The News: “Our Pakistani clients are showing substantial interest in migrating to Britain through the investment route as a consequence of the incentives on offer and the fast tracked timetable. Our Pakistani and Middle Eastern clients seek security for their investments and a stable environment for their children, which regrettably is not currently on offer in Pakistan. We are now servicing these clients and in turn assisting the government with its plans to enhance the austerity plans. It is truly a unique opportunity.â€

    A UK Border Agency spokesperson told The News: “The government has been clear that we want to attract the brightest and the best to help our economic recovery. We believe that entrepreneurs, investors, and people of exceptional talent have the most to offer in terms of driving economic growth. We are looking at ways to encourage investors to come to the UK and to make the application process more user-friendly; we will announce changes in due course.â€

    Rats deserting the sinking ship, eh?

    We ought to pull in some of them here too. Especially people from the entertainment industry like Adnan Sami, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Veena Malik (yum :smitten: ), etc. etc. Then people from other walks of life will follow suit: businessmen, industrialists, etc.

    In addition to settling down here, those people will come in with loads of cash to invest in India. They can be asked to make statements about how Pakistan has failed, how the ideology and concept of Pakistan has turned out to be an utter failure, and so on. :partay:

    Are you okay man? :what: We don't need disloyal rats here. We already got our share of looters. You know how they got rich in their country? through being Zardari-ists and swindling their national wealth. As if we don't have that already. Let them all go wherever they want... but NOT IN INDIA.

    there are mostly three type of class in Pakistan:
    1: Rich and powerful But never paid tax.
    2: Rich business class but powerless and paid taxes.
    3: Poor and powerless and never paid taxes. We call it Lower class.
    There is fewer middle class in Pakistan some paid tax but most of them never paid. Now you can imagine that what will happened if the 2nd type of people will leave the country and migrant to other country and most probably it will happened because no businessman can be survive in unstable economy.

    I don't understand your problem you are avoiding debate on good topics and expressing your low IQ and pathetic mind in threads like these.
    Pakistan and Pakistan ideology is success there is a slight difference between poors and elite class but in Pakistan people pay more charity then any other country in the world.

    Oh, but you're wrong! Ideology of Pakistan is indeed a failure. Having been created as a safe haven for the Muslims of the subcontinent, the Bengali Muslims couldn't stay with you for even 2 1/2 decades. Calling itself the vanguard of Mohammedans of the subcontinent, today's Pakistan has Shia-Sunni-Ahmadiya sectarian violence like never before. Touting itself as the 'Thekedaar' of Muslims, neither the Balochi Muslims nor the Pashtun Muslims want to stay with Pakistan. The nation is on the verge of disintegration.

    Now, if you don't call that a failure, I wonder what the definition of "failing" is! Certainly, all indications point to the fact that the ideology of Pakistan has been a failure. The ideology is a failure, NOT because of the gap between elites and poor. That gap exists in all nations including India, China, Western nations, etc. The ideology is a failure for the other reasons I listed above.

    u asked 4 it! British Pakistanis:


    - Pakistani households are more reliant then any other groups on social security (basically sponging off us hard working tax payers).
    - 60% of Pakistanis live in low-income households.
    - Indian girls & boys are more likely to get 5 or more GCSEs at grade A*- C, thantheir White, Black, Pakistani & Bangladeshi counterparts.
    - Chinese, Indian, Black African & other Asians are more likely to have degrees than White people. Pakistanis & Bangladeshis are most likely to be unqualified.
    There are many more statistics, here is a the link, read for yourselves (it's from 2002, believe me, not much has changed):

    http://www.statistics.gov.uk/pdfdir/meg1202.pdf

    British Pakistanis represent 3% of all births in UK, but one third (33%) of ALL babies born retarded, deformed, diseased, with defects are Pakistanis, this is a huge burden on our health service. The British govt & doctors/medical professionals have tried their best to advice Pakistanis to stop shagging their sisters, but they don't listen!

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/health/article7069255.ece

    Pakistani men have double standards, they want their women covered in burkhas & to stay at home, while they go on the hunt for White & Indian girls. They are known to hit on underage girls. Too many sources to post, google is your friend, check out for yourselves!

    This is enough for now.
