Global Talent (Appendix W Workers)

Though Global Talent replaced Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) on 20 February 2020, the Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) route remains open for settlement applications. This category is for talented and promising individuals in the fields of science, engineering, medicine, humanities, digital technology and arts and culture (including film and television, fashion design and architecture) wishing to work in the UK. Applicants will be leaders in their field, or have the potential to be leaders, as determined by a Home Office recognised endorsing body. Furthermore, all migrants entering the UK under the Global Talent category must have valid entry clearance under this route. If they do not, entry will be refused.

Here’s what you need to know.

  • Applicants must be 18 or over
  • Entry clearance is mandatory
  • Biometric information is required for applications made in the UK
  • Dependents are allowed
  • Knowledge of language and life is required (for indefinite leave to remain applications)
