Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) is for people who are internationally recognised as world leaders or potential world-leading talent in the fields of science and the arts, and who wish to work in the UK.
The UK government has limited the number of applications that can be made under Tier 1 (Exceptional talent).
Every initial application must be endorsed by a ‘designated competent body’. There is a limit of 1,000 endorsements between 6 April 2013 and 5 April 2014. The total will be divided between the designated competent bodies as follows:
|Designated competent body||Total endorsements||Until 30 September 2013||From 1 October 2013 to 5 April 2014|
|Arts Council England||300||150||150|
|Royal Academy of Engineering||200||100||100|
You will score 75 points if you have an endorsement from a ‘designated competent body’. This is an organisation that can judge whether you are internationally recognised in your field as a world-leading talent, or have demonstrated exceptional promise and are likely to become a world-leading talent.
For your application to be successful, you must score a total of 75 points and meet all the other requirements of the Immigration Rules
For your application to be successful, you must score a total of 95 points and meet all the other requirements of the Immigration Rules
