Tier 1 UK Visas (Exceptional Talent)

The Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) category is for those who are internationally recognised as world leaders or potential world-leading talent in the fields of science, humanities, engineering, medicine, digital technology or the arts and who wish to work in the UK.

The category will be overseen by world-renowned 'competent bodies', which will advise the UKBA on these "exceptionally talented" migrants to ensure they are the brightest and best in their field.  These four 'competent bodies' are The Royal Society, Arts Council England, The Royal Academy of Engineering and The British Academy.

There are limited places available under this visa category, with 500 places released on both 6 April and 1 October each year.

To qualify for a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa you must score 85 points for your attributes as follows:
