About The Role
The Tech Nation Visa Ambassador group is composed of Alumni who are highly active in supporting the Alumni Network and Tech Nation Visa. The Ambassadors act as a link between Tech Nation, the Alumni Network and the wider tech community. As key representatives, they provide insight and intellect as former applicants into the process of applying for the Global Talent visa.
By becoming an Ambassador, alumni help Tech Nation develop and improve the Global Talent route for future applicants, and are recognised for their efforts in supporting the Alumni Network. This is a guide for anyone who wants to apply to become an ambassador and we recommend you read the guidelines before applying.

How To Become An Ambassador
The process for onboarding new Ambassadors is operated on an ongoing basis. If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador, you can complete the Registration of Interest form available on the Alumni Slack group.
Before You Register
Please take the following prerequisites into account:
1. You are a member of the Tech Nation Visa Alumni Network
2. You hold a valid Tech Nation Global Talent visa
3. Your Tech Nation Global Talent Visa is not about to expire
If you tick all three boxes, please go to the Alumni Slack Group to register your interest.
If you’re not a member, you can sign up below.
A summary of additional considerations to note before you submit your Registration of Interest:
It remains at the discretion of Tech Nation when and who to onboard as new Ambassadors, and will be based on a consideration of both how the Registration of Interest meets the stated commitments, and depending on there being sufficient space available within the Ambassador group.
Whilst there is no formal limit on the number of Ambassadors, Tech Nation aims to keep this an optimum group size to maintain effective communication and productivity.
Ambassadors may withdraw from the group at any time simply by informing the Tech Nation Visa team of their desire to leave the group. Tech Nation reserves the right to remove Ambassadors from the group under the following circumstances:
a) The Ambassador no longer meets the commitments of the role at the annual review
b) The Code of Conduct is no longer being met (potentially incurring immediate removal)
