ABOUT THIS SERVICE

Our Global Talent Visa Services

The UK Global Talent Visa, sometimes known as the Tech Nation Visa, was introduced in February 2020 as a replacement to the Exceptional Talent visa. This route allows those with outstanding skill and leadership in their chosen field to come to the UK to live and work.

After 5 years, applicants can apply for settlement.

Allows you to bring dependents under the age of 18, and spouse or partner to the UK.

Dependents under the age of 18 entitled to free UK education.

I would definitely recommend Westkin to anyone needing an immigration lawyer. I was told that my case was highly unlikely to be granted. With the help of Westkin, my whole process of visa preparation, application and result was finished successfully and quickly. They were well informed, smart, helpful and kind.

There are four different ways to qualify for the Global Talent Visa. These are:

Peer reviews – requires an endorsement from an approved endorsing body. Senior appointments – granted by British universities, educational and research institutes and are endorsed by the same bodies as the peer views.

Fellowships – gained at research institutes or a high education facility which has gained the approval of the endorsing bodies.

Endorsed funding – assessed by the UKRI and offers a fast track to settlement.
These endorsements are largely administered by an approved body which includes the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, Tech Nation, the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the British Academy.

Our specialist legal team has a strong understanding of the requirements of different scientific endorsing bodies, and has worked with a wide range of clients to get their applications approved. We will work tirelessly to tailor your application to meet these demands and get your Global Talent Visa granted.
