The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you are exceptionally skilled or talented in your particular field, you may be eligible for a Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa. To qualify for this type of Tier 1 Visa, you must either be a recognized or emerging leader in Science, Humanities, Engineering, Medicine, IT or the Arts. This type of visa grants more freedom than other work visas.
Holders can carry out paid and voluntary work, switch jobs and be self-employed without notifying the Home Office. This visa also allows you to travel abroad and bring dependents with you. Due to its competitive nature, this type of Tier 1 Visa is difficult to obtain. Our expert immigration lawyers can assist you with each stage of your inquiry and application process. They will ensure that your application meets the highest possible standard.
Our services span a number of different areas and are tailored to you. Your assigned lawyer will work with you to assess your eligibility for this visa type. They will then assist you with each stage of your application process if you choose to proceed. As part of the service, your lawyer will also write a detailed Letter of Representation. This letter will recommend you as either an emerging or recognized leader by drawing on evidence and legal opinion. Along with this, they will also liaise with your endorsement giver and the Home Office during your application process. Contact us on +1844 290 6312 or use our online contact form today to arrange your first consultation with one of our specialist lawyers.
