NOTICE We are switching our application form to a new system

Tech Nation Visa Scheme
(Tier 1 Exceptional Talent)

Apply online for endorsement from Tech City UK to come into the UK if you are a talented individual in the digital technology sector.

Please note that this is not an immigration application and if your application for endorsement is successful you will need to apply for your visa within 3 months of being endorsed. Before applying for your visa please check whether you can apply to switch from inside the UK or whether you must leave the UK and make your application from abroad.

You will need to print your application form once it is complete and send it, along with your supporting documents, directly to the Home Office. You will also need to complete a Home Office endorsement form to include with your application pack. Ensure you read the Home Office guidance before applying for this visa route.

First check whether you are eligible to apply for this visa route.

We have switched our application form to a new system.
