Tech Nation Visa Application
Welcome to the Tech Nation Visa.
This is your opportunity to demonstrate why you wish to come to the UK as an exceptionally talented or promising individual in the digital technology sector. Before making an application you should thoroughly review the following resources:
- UK government website for the Global Talent Visa
- Official Global Talent Assessment Criteria
- Official Global Talent Immigration Rules
- Tech Nation Visa Guide
Tech Nation is unable to provide advice beyond the above Guidance.
Please note that this is your Stage 1 application for endorsement, and if successful you will need to apply for your Stage 2 immigration application within 3 months of being endorsed. If you are currently in the UK, please check before continuing whether you can apply to switch your current visa from inside the UK, or whether you must leave the UK and make your application from abroad.
Please note Tech Nation is continuing to process Stage 1 endorsement applications for Global Talent Visas as normal.
Endorsements are usually valid for up to 3 months. Advice from the Home Office is that if your endorsement from Tech Nation has expired because you have not been able to travel to the UK you may still be eligible for a visa. You should make your application as planned and should your endorsement expire before you can travel, the Home Office will consider all Stage 2 applications on a case by case basis.
When determining whether to endorse an application, Tech Nation will not consider an applicant’s immigration status or ability to travel, we will assess the effectiveness of the applicant’s plans in the UK.
