What is the Global Talent Visa?
The Global Talent Visa is a UK immigration category for those individuals who have talent and a promising career in specific sectors, who wish to work in the UK. Before making an application for this visa, one has to be endorsed from a specific endorsing body in the UK.
What are the categories for endorsement?
We can assist individuals who have talent and promise in science, engineering, medicine, humanities, digital technology, arts and culture. Talent applicants will already be leaders in their field whilst promising applicants will be able to show the potential to become leaders in their field. We will be able to assist applicants to apply for the endorsement, and for the visa.
How long is a UK Global Talent Visa valid for?
When making the application you can choose how much leave you wish to apply for. The maximum is five years and it can be granted in one single application. However, if you wish to minimise the Immigration Health Surcharge payment you can apply initially for two years. You can also switch into the Global Talent Route from the UK, as long as you meet the switching criteria.
How long does it take to get a decision?
You can get a decision within eight weeks if you are inside the UK or three weeks if you are outside the UK. The cost of the application is £608 and you will have to pay the healthcare surcharge as part of the application.
Can EA nationals apply under the Global Talent Visa?
Following the UK’s exit from the European Union, EU nationals will need a visa to live and work in the UK and can make an application under this scheme. There are no limits on the number of people that can enter the UK through the Global Talent route.
