The Global Talent Visa or the UK exceptional talent visa is a UK immigration route for the exceptional or promising individuals in different industries such as engineering, science, technology, arts and medicine. These individuals must acquire a Global Talent Visa if they wish to work in the UK. In February 2020, the Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa category was replaced by the Global Talent Visa. This new immigration path can provide settlement for 3 or 5 years to talented and promising candidates. After completing the settlement application and the necessary residency period in the UK, the candidates may even apply for British Citizenship, also known as a global talent visa indefinite leave to remain.

The Endorsement of a Global Talent Visa application usually takes 3 to 8 weeks depending on where you are based. In comparison, the visa application will take around three weeks if you have applied from outside the United Kingdom and around eight weeks if you have applied from within the UK. However, things are progressing after the COVID-19 pandemic; digital technology has enabled applicants to fast-track their applications under specific circumstances.
Once you have successfully secured your Endorsement from an endorsement body, you will go through the actual immigration application process. Our experienced solicitor will provide complete support to gather the right information and supporting documents to draft the application for the Home Office. They will run a final review on the immigration aspects and evaluate your information according to the country’s immigration policies. We help you if you are applying within the UK or outside of the UK.
We offer a free of charge initial assessment for this visa category. Call us on 0203 983 5080 or fill in the online enquiry form.
