The Tech Nation Visa Scheme is Live!


Attracting the best and brightest tech talent to the UK got easier in 2015 as the Home Office has published renewed eligibility criteria for the Tech Nation Visa Scheme (Tier 1 Exceptional Talent).

Following the announcement of plans to revise the criteria on 16th October 2015, the visa route is open for applications under the new eligibility criteria.

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.
