UK Tech Companies

If you are looking to grow your business depth and skill base by gaining foreign nationals to work for your business without needing to find and sponsor them, then perhaps the Government/Home Office may be able to give you a helping hand.

Since the 13th March this year, the Immigration rules have changed and endorsed wider and stronger connections, through Tech City, of businesses who wish to gain the skills of international workers outside of the EEA as part of an economic development of the UK digital market. With these stronger ties and broader definitions of what constitutes technical companies, the UK economy can once again prosper as a competitive country advancing towards growth in digital matters.

The Home Office have created a partnership with Tech City UK giving them the opportunity of endorsing Visas to Exceptional talented workers, and opening the field of individuals in digital technology, without the need for sponsorship from a company under Tier 2. This means that world renown individuals in these fields are able to come over to the UK and invest in the digital economy easier than before. This target is in line with establishing long term economical developments of strengthening ties outside of the EEA, especially China, and being the technology central of the EU.

This provides individuals in the digital sector with a greater flexibility and attractiveness to come over and work or invest in UK digital technology companies. The changes applied in the Immigration rules include longer periods of leave for skilled workers, from 3 to 5 years so they do not have to think about updating their visa for a further 2 more years.

All in all, the main purpose of this government scheme is to increase the flexibility of the individual who wishes to invest in the UK digital sector which in turn, enhances the country’s economic growth.
