If you are at 18 years of age and are working in the following sectors, you are eligible to apply for a Global Talent Visa:
- Digital technology
- Research or academics
You can qualify to apply for free EU Settlement Scheme, if by 31st December 2020 you or any of your family members started living in the UK. An endorsement is needed to apply for a Global Talent Visa, but even without an endorsement if you’ve won an award, you are eligible to apply in the above-mentioned fields. There are different types of alternative work visas for applying to the UK.
The entire application process is online and it depends upon the following factors:
- An individual is coming to the UK from the outside UK
- If you are switching to a different visa while being in the UK
- If a visa extension is needed while you are living in the UK
Duration of the Entire Process
There isn’t a limit to your stay, but a visa renewal and extension application need to be filled out once your visa expires. This can be an extension from 1 to 5 years and also depends on how long you plan to stay in the UK. You can apply for permanent settlement after working for 3 to 5 years of working in a specific field.
The total charges are £608, which is divided into two parts if your application is based on endorsements. Only then you’ll have to pay £152 for the visa application and £456 for endorsement. It will be individually charged, £608 if you are applying for your partner and your children as well.
Additional charges for healthcare
Yearly, for each individual, it’s £624 and if you are in the category of an eligible country then there is a £55 fee reduction on a visa application. This is only for the Global Talent Visa holder and not their spouse or children.
