Global Talent Visas

The Global Talent visa is aimed at talented and promising applicants within the fields of science, engineering, medicine, humanities, digital technology and arts and culture (including film/television, fashion design and architecture) who wish to work in the UK.

The applicant will not require a job offer and this route can lead to settlement.

A dependent partner and dependent children under 18 can apply under this route.
