As Tech City UK endeavours to help digital businesses thrive at every stage in their lifecycle, we have recognised that attracting talent from outside of the EU is key to ensuring that the UK remains at the forefront of the global digital economy.
The new eligibility criteria include specific provisions to enable companies to get the right talent in a quicker and more efficient way. Whether you are an individual with very specific technical knowledge, a team of exceptional individuals who has demonstrated success or an individual contributing to one of the Northern cities, your application will now be fast-tracked with Tech City UK reviewing your application in 18 days.
Furthermore, we have recognised that certain individuals who demonstrate the potential to become the next generation of leaders in the field of digital technology have slipped through the cracks. This route is now open to candidates, who although assessed against the same criteria, will be considered to have ‘Exceptional Promise.’ This aims to open the route to a broader base of aspiring talent from outside the EU.
Tech City UK is one of five Designated Competent Bodies appointed by the Home Office to review applications from individuals wishing to enter the country under Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa route. The organisation evaluates applications in the area of Digital Technology. A full summary of the Visa routes for the tech sector are below:
