Tier 1 exceptional Talent Visa

The Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa is for individuals who have been recognised as either a leader (exceptional talent) or emerging leader (exceptional promise) in the fields of science, humanities, engineering, medicine, the arts or digital technology.

The applicant will first need to make a separate application to the Home Office for an endorsement and then submit the visa application.

Individuals wishing to come to work in the UK in the digital technology sector will also need to apply for a Tech Nation Visa Scheme endorsement.

An applicant may be able to switch to this category if they are already in the UK on a Tier 1, Tier 2 or as a Tier 5 (Temporary worker – Government Authorised Exchange) visa.

If the application is successful, the individual would be granted permission to stay in the UK for up to 5 years, after which it may be possible to apply for settlement in the UK.

It is also possible for dependents to join the main applicant in the UK subject to meeting all the requirements of the relevant Immigration Rules.

To find out more about the above, you are welcome to call us on 020 8566 5522 for a preliminary informal discussion of your matter. We may ask you to send us further information about your matter either by fax on 020 8566 5511 or by email at so that we may get a fuller picture of your circumstances.

After this initial discussion, you may wish to book an appointment for a full consultation via SKYPE or ideally at our offices located at 7 Central Chambers, The Broadway, Ealing, W5 2NR. We are directly opposite Ealing Broadway tube and railway station.
