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 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.
In order for your Stage 1 application to be valid you must submit your Tech Nation application form no more than 15 working days after you submitted your Home Office application. Failure to submit your Tech Nation application form will result in your application being rejected as invalid.
On the 1st December 2020 the Eligibility Criteria for Tech Nation Visa were changed. Please read regarding these changes here. Applicants who submitted their Application for Endorsement form and paid the associated fee on the Gov.uk website prior to this date should not be affected by these changes, however you should review the immigration rules regarding any other changes that may impact you.
Tech Nation continues to process Stage 1 endorsement applications for the Global Talent Visa as normal. You should review the official UK Government Covid-19 guidance regarding Stage 2 visa applications and other immigration matters:
