This post is about you, my readers and, who are potential applicants for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa. Since I have already got the first 100 of messages to me (you can see a red Messenger in the right bottom corner), and over 50 emails on this topic I decide to write you five main rules to follow in order to get the answer for your question.
1. Read the Guidelines and blog
Almost all questions are answered in either Tech Nation Guidelines or Home Office Guidelines about Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa route. Before asking your questions, do your best to find required information there. Then, if you still have your questions – search in my blog. Probably, the answer is already here because (1) I have written about this stuff in my own life, (2) Someone has already asked me about this and again – I have answered on this question. If you still do not know the answer to your question – go to the next step.
2. Write down your question
Sometimes, when you are making a question and finding appropriate words for this, you can re-think it or even suggest a new place to find an answer for it. Please, do this and it will save your time (you will not wait a couple of days or a week for an answer and can find it by yourself). If you are drafting a question for me, please mention the relevant information since it will help to give you clearer answer:
- are you applying for Exceptional Talent or Exceptional Promise visa route;
- do you apply within UK or outside;
- do you apply for technical or business route;
- do you consider your application under Fast Track option.
3. Find relevant contacts to ask
I am open to answer your questions in different ways. But my favourite two methods are email and Messenger. Please, write me to firstname.lastname@example.org, in particularly, if you want to read my opinion about your Personal Statement, Letter of Recommendation or any supporting document. Or give me a shout via Messenger for any other questions and let’s try to find answers together.
4. Make a reminder
Since life in London is very interesting and busy, sometimes it happens… Yep, I forget to reply within 3 – 5 days to your email. Forgive me this sin. And remind me about your question, please! I am happy to be disturbed by these reminders since I understand that the importance of visa application for your life (and frequently – lives of your beloved ones). So, thanks for understanding and if you do not hear anything from me for a week – write me about this.
5. Let me know about your case!
Finally, I want to say that all your mails with information about your endorsements give me a big smile. I am happy that my work helps other talented people to shine and find own way to come to the United Kingdom. Even if you are not endorsed – I am also here so write me about your case and your questions. I will do my best to support you and share the information what I know.
In any case, let’s be in touch and good luck with your Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa applications, gifted folks 🙂
