Tier 1 Exceptional Talent
The Tier 1 (Migrant) Exceptional Talent Immigration category according to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) is designed for highly skilled migrants. Highly skilled individuals must be skilled in Science, the Humanities, Engineering, the Arts or Digital technology and able to enrich the UK’s knowledge economy and cultural life.
The Exceptional Talent Application process is split into two stages. Stage 1 is referred to as the Exceptional Talent Endorsement and Stage 2 is the Immigration Application. Applicants must ensure that adequate documentation is presented to the Designated Competent Body for Stage 1. Obtaining good quality advice and submitting the appropriate documentation is extremely important if an application to the Designated Competent Body is to be successful. Stage 2 which is the Immigration Application should ideally be made after an Exceptional Talent Endorsement application has been successfully made.
One of the benefits of making a Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Immigration application is that successful applicants have fewer restrictions than most Immigration categories. Applicants can be employed or self – employed and if employed, they can change employer.
Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Migrants are also able to bring in their partners and children.
We have a dedicated team of Immigration advisers will advise on all the steps and documents that a Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Applicant needs to be aware of when making an Immigration application.
