CLOSURE OF TIER 1 (EXCEPTIONAL TALENT)
As it is known now, Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) was replaced by the Global Talent category on 20 February 2020.
However, a number of transitional arrangements apply to applicants who are affected by this change, such as the following:
- Applicants who hold a valid Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) endorsement (Stage 1) but have not yet applied for entry clearance or leave to remain in line (Stage 2), can use this endorsement to apply for Global Talent. The initial requirements mirror those previously applied to Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) applicants.
- Applicants who currently hold Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) leave and who wish to apply to extend their stay, must do so under the Global Talent category. The extension requirements mirror those previously applied to Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) applicants.
- Applicants who are currently in the UK under Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) and who wish to apply for settlement (Indefinite Leave to Remain) may do so without the need to switch into the Global Talent route. The settlement requirements remain the same as those in place before 20 February 2020.
