More Australians could soon work and live in the UK once a new proposed visa deal is approved by the federal government.
According to a News Corp report, Prime Minister Tony Abbott was tipped to mention the visa deal proposition during a visit to the capital earlier this week.
Officials from the UK and Australia say that they are working out a compromise work visa to counter European Union laws that impose restrictions on the number of people living in the UK from outside the EU.
In the last two years alone, the number of Australians heading to the UK for work has dropped about 50 following the policy changes. Australia has argued it should have special consideration given its status and relationship with the UK.
