Frequently asked questions

What is Global Talent visa in the UK?

The Global Talent visa is a UK immigration category for talented and promising individuals across various sectors, such as sciences, engineering, tech, arts and others, who wish to work in the UK.

To be considered for entry under the Global Talent visa, applicants must normally seek endorsement from one of six endorsing bodies engaged by the UK Home Office. The Global Talent visa is not a ‘sponsored’ visa and so it gives you maximum flexibility and freedom to live and work in the UK with no restrictions along with the option to settle in the UK within just 3 years.

There is no English language or financial requirement for this visa.
The visa is granted for a period of 1 to 5 years (the applicant gets to choose).
The first stage of your application is obtaining endorsement (receiving approval of the “talent” from a recognized endorsing body)

You should normally receive your endorsement decision within 8 weeks, and then you can apply for a visa (Stage 2 of your application).

Who is eligible to get Global Talent visa in the UK?

Applicants across various industries are welcome to apply. It includes scientists, engineers, research professionals, artists, tech professionals, dancers, singers, etc. On top of those obvious directions, we have experience in helping marketing, HR, and project management professionals get this visa.

To be considered for the Global Talent visa in the UK, you must obtain an endorsement from one of six approved by the Home Office endorsing bodies (Tech Nation, the Royal Society, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the Royal Academy of Engineering, the British Academy or Arts Council England). This is called Stage 1 application.

Each endorsing body has its own criteria when assessing the case, however, there are generally have two types of applications applying for the global talent visa:

  • Exceptional Talent – individuals who have already demonstrated that they have made a significant contribution as a leader to their field; and
  • Exceptional Promise – individuals who may be at an early stage in their careers (under 5 years of experience) and have already shown the potential to make significant contributions as a future leader in their field

‘Promise’ applicants are likely to be in the earlier stages in their career, with roughly 5 years or less relevant experience and are more likely to be able to demonstrate that they have the potential to be a leader but have yet to develop a proven track record.

If you have more than 5 years’ experience you are more likely to apply under ‘Talent’ unless there has been a recent and significant shift in the direction of your career.

The UK Global Talent visa enables you to take your family members with you. It is called dependent(s). You can bring your spouse/wife/husband, civil or unmarried partner and your children under the age of 18.

CV and LinkedIn writing – how does it work?

CV & LinkedIn writing service is performed in 4 stages.

1. CV formatting

We change the layout of your resume according to what employers want to see using our template that captures the best practice and years of our consultants’ experience.

2. Writing the compelling content

Wondering who actually writes the CV? We do. But to get from a blank page to a finalised document, we need your input and answers to our questions about your experience. First, we define your responsibilities and achievements, find correct job titles in English/German, highlight key competencies and add keywords to resonate with an employer in seconds. It then takes 2-3 rounds of iterations to produce a compelling CV.

3. Proofreading

Our native proofreaders check your CV for errors – your CV has to be mistake-free. We then send you the final version in a word doc format so you can adjust it to any relevant roles. Our clients often say, “I cannot believe that my experience and achievements sound so impressive!”

4. LinkedIn profile optimisation notes

Based on the proofread resume, we send you instructions on how to optimise your LinkedIn profile in English. The instructions cover every little detail, from URL and overall settings to every section of your profile. Once you have updated your LinkedIn profile, we will look through it again to make sure you did everything correctly and provide further improvement recommendations when needed.
In addition to your CV and LinkedIn notes, you will get a 17-page CV ebook, a 12-page LinkedIn ebook and a guide on how to adapt the CV for each role.
