Global Talent Visa UK – Requirements and Process
The Global Talent Visa has replaced the Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa. This visa allows individuals who are leaders or potential leaders in academia or research, arts and culture, or digital technology to live and work in the UK. In this article, we’ll provide you with all the information you need to know about applying for a Global Talent Visa.
To be eligible for a Global Talent Visa, you must be at least 18 years old and be a leader or potential leader in one of the three mentioned fields.
- Valid passport or other document showing your identity and nationality.
- Results of tuberculosis test, if required
- Written permission to apply if you’ve had an award or scholarship to study in the UK in the last year.
- Certified translation if your documents are not in English or Welsh
To apply for a Global Talent Visa, you’ll need to have successfully applied for an endorsement to prove that you’re a leader or potential leader. If you’ve won an eligible award, you can apply for the visa without an endorsement. You can find out which awards are eligible on the UK government website.
After three or five years, depending on which field you work in and how you apply, you may be eligible to get indefinite leave to remain and settle in the UK. To extend your stay in the UK, you must be able to show that you earned money in your expert field during your time in the country by sending evidence with your application, such as payslips.
