Our Tech Nation Visa Scheme makes it possible for tech talent from around the world to come and work in the UK’s digital technology sector. Tech City UK is the designated competent body for digital technology and has the ability to endorse applications for the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa.

We hold regular monthly meet-ups for our Visa Scheme alumni, alongside online forums as well as practical and professional advice for our visa holders.

As part of our mission to ensure that the UK continues to maintain its position as a globally competitive digital economy, we have also launched the research series Tech Nation Talent, a series of four reports, published month by month, focussing on different aspects of talent in the digital tech sector. The first report, in partnership with Nesta, covered the nationality of workers in the UK tech workforce.
