Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa is a unique chance for talents to come to the United Kingdom and work in science, engineering, humanities, medicine, digital technology, the arts and fashion. This blog post is about the main 32 steps to do in order to get this visa. I wrote it with only digital technology in mind and in soul. However, if you are applying any other kind of Exceptional Talent Visa, you possibly will find some relevant information for you too.
Probably, yes, but… In reality many of the applicants who thought they can, actually, CAN’T. They write a long text with information about themselves, their startups and their expectations however, occasionally they miss something important and afterwards – do not get Endorsement. So, let’s start from the basics of the Personal Statement – this important document for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa.
I am not joking. Below I prepared a list of eight dangerous quotes sent to me within the emails by my blog readers. Also, a couple of them are generalised sentences from Personal Statements drafted by potential Exceptional Talent Visa applicants. In major cases, later on all of these visa applications become just numbers in total statistics of Endorsement refusals and these people are in the army of unsuccessful visa applicants.
So why I am publishing this list? To caution you about the typical mistakes and to supersede your potentially harmful thoughts by short constructive ideas how to avoid these mistakes to get UK Exceptional Talent Visa.
I am delighted that Talent Visa app already helps Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa applicants to understand the basics of this interesting visa route and read some documents in relation with this visas. However, my readers continue to ask me some unique questions so today it is all about the communication between Tech Nation Visa applicants and Tech Nation as a designated competent body.
Are you looking for an Example of Personal Statement or Letter of Recommendation? Do you want to read someone’s personal statement in order to understand its structure and idea? Have you searched for personal statements from past applicants for UK Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions – you definitely have a reason to buy Talent Visa App or, at least, to read more about it.
Big updates will come soon. I will make announcements so you will definitely not miss them.
But now I want to focus on a question I get quite frequently. It is about eligibility to apply for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa having enormous experience in tech (or digital business).
Perhaps, my thoughts will be interesting for your and help in your personal case. By the way, any sensitive information was deleted or replaced.

Today we got updates to the Fast Track option of Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa. That is an interesting and promising change of policy regarding accepting digital talents and exceptional promises in the United Kingdom. Hence, I decided to make a brief of the changes to bring you more clarity what’s going on now.
On 16th June we will have a big day in our community. This will be the first ever Smart City Hack Day. Or we simply call it our Hackathon. This event is fully organised by Tech Nation Visa Alumni Network in partnership with CompareTheMarket.com, TechLondonAdvocates, Entrepreneur First, London Tech Week and Realities Centre. By the way, if you or your company would like to become a partner of our Hack Day – let me know, please.
Sometimes it happens that potential applicants for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa send me their drafts of personal statements and ask about my opinion. I want to write officially and in bold: guys, I am not an authorized assessor of your personal statements neither for Exceptional Promise nor for Exceptional Talent visa applications.
Hence, it is not a difficult task for me to read a piece of text and write what I think about it but this is not the main goal of this blog. Moreover, any personal opinion (mine or any other person) – it is just a bunch of thoughts. Only Tech Nation Visa Panel makes the final decision and only people who are members of this Panel are entitled to make any official comments. Or immigration advisors, who are authorized by OISC.
Fresh Tech Nation Report 2017 is available now – completely interesting and thought-provoking materials on digital technologies in the United Kingdom. But! In relation to the Tech Nation Visa route, there are just a couple of updates, so I collected them.
