“Exceptional Talent” from overseas

By February 28, 2017Uncategorized

Those with “Exceptional Talent” are being sought by tech companies and permitted to work in the UK via Tier 1 “Tech Nation” Visas.  Initially introduced in 2014, the rules were relaxed in 2015 to make the process more succinct and effective.  Although the criteria remain strict, it is looking likely that up to 200 visa applications will be granted up to April 2017.  Criteria include being or having potential to be a world leader in digital technology, or being internationally recognised for digital achievements.  Is this a need for your business?  For more information visit Tech Nation:  Whatever you do, make sure you don’t find yourself falling foul of employing those not permitted to work in the UK as consequences are high and the media spotlight is hot!
