UK – Tier 1 Visas to Expand Eligibility Criteria

In an effort to attract a greater number of applicants to the technology sector, the Tier 1 scheme for exceptional talent will expand its eligibility criteria and include individuals demonstrating “exceptional promise” rather than just those with established careers. The new scheme will offer an option for scale-up fast-track applications for rapidly growing companies enabling them to more easily fill talent gaps. Furthermore, the scheme will provide an accelerated application process for the digital technology sector across the North of England. Finally, it will allow for companies to recruit exceptional teams of up to five individuals as they will be able to apply at once for the visas. These new Tier 1 scheme requirements will be implemented on November 12, 2015.
