Questions on Letter of Recommendation

Letter of Recommendation is one of the key documents in your Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa application so please, read the question that I have got and think about your own application:

“One of my Letter of Recommendation is signed by one well-known person who is a CEO of The Company where I work. The second letter is signed by my line manager of The Company. Both of these letters are on the headed paper and with addendum of CVs for these people.

I can ask about one more letter of recommendation from my previous job however, it is not an international company and is quite small in size (10 employees)”

General advice on Personal Statement

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.

General Questions on Endorsement Stage

Question (author’s style is kept): I’m planning to apply for the Tech Nation Visa scheme and went through your guide. Would like to clarify below points as I’m not 100% clear with these areas:

1. Supporting documents count including 2 Recommendation letters and CV as well? Or these 10 could be 10 different documents?
2. Limit on the personal statement is 7000 Character or 7000 words?
3. Evidence of continuous learning – not more than 1 year as per guide: How to showcase the progress through out career?
4. If the evidence is more than 2 pages (For example: Employment Contract) can we share only one page of it? May not have signature on those page – hope this will not be an issue?
5. If my recommending person cannot give letter on company letter head (due to company policy), will that be suffice to submit the recommendation letter without letter head?
6. Submission of application is online? or Both Online and Post?

Please help me with these clarifications to proceed with the Visa scheme.
