Hi Venita and welcome to the Forum. :)

You will probably find it extremely difficult to get a visa to come and live/work in the UK.  At the moment, immigration to the UK for non-EEA citizens is restricted to specific highly skilled people with a job offer in a shortage occupation - this link will take you to the web-page with the details and this link will take you to the one that describes all the visa requirements (there are a few exceptions in there, but they are mainly aimed at charity workers, so may not be suitable).

Best of luck.

Thank you Cynic do you know any countries which do not need visa where i can restart a new life :(

Hi Venita,

I think most countries have visa requirements for people who wish to come to live and work there.  Most western countries have similar hurdles for people to try and get over and thus make it very difficult for those whose skill-set are not on similar lists to the one I gave you the link to.

My advice - maybe consider re-training in Mauritius into a skill that features on the lists - maybe nursing, teaching - both of which are required in the UK?

Yes ,

I have seen a lot of young men and women in your situation, it is everybody's right to be ambitious and desire a bright future.

There are two paths you may consider.

a) Go to Dubai or Middle east  ( except Saudi Arabia), get a job at a multinational company and develop your professional and technical expertise, it is very likely that your employer will allow you to move to their European or US office and go through the trouble of arranging work permit.

b) University education in Germany ( and a few other European countries) is free. You may opt to take a two year master's degree course in Germany, after completion of your course, you will have 18 months to work, once you find a job, you will get a blue card which allows you to work in Germany and travel anywhere in the EU. :)

Finally some hope thank you Riazcdki for your precious  advice .
