If you’re in the fields of Art and Culture And Digital Technology then the body for this is the Art Council England Or Tech Nation which follows separate endorsement criteria.

For Research and Academia, there are four ways for them to obtain endorsement for the Global Talents Visa and those ways are;

1 Individual Fellowship

You can get an endorsement if you have been awarded an individual fellowship from the list approved by the Royal Academy Of Engineering And The Royal Society Or The British Academy. The fellowship must be held currently or at least held within the last 5 years.

2 Peer Review

You get the standard endorsement if you submit an application for full peer review by the Royal Academy Of Engineering, Royal Society Or The British Academy. 

3 Academic And Research Appointments 

 You can also get an endorsement if you have accepted an eligible position at an approved United Kingdom higher education institution or a research institute with responsibility for either academic research or innovation leadership and development. This is also given by the Royal Academy Of Engineering, The Royal Society And The British Academy. 

 4 Endorsed Funders

You can also get endorsed if you are a researcher that is employed or hosted by a UKRI-approved eligible institution. As a researcher or specialist whose name or job title is specified in a successful grant application from an endorsed funder approved by UKRI, you’re also able to get an endorsement.

Benefits of the Global Talent Visa 

1 The Global Talent Visa gives you the opportunity to be able to travel anywhere in the world for research purposes without it counting towards the maximum time period for absences from the UK if you choose to apply for settlement 

2 You usually get your feedback and endorsement within 14 days 

3 The Global Talent Visa allows you to switch jobs and grow your career. You have the flexibility to change employers or switch roles, also you get a chance to become self-employed and also earn money from other sources like consultancy without having to go seek approval from the home office and this is unlike the United kingdom’s main Skilled Worker Visa.

4 You enjoy lower visa fees 

The fee for a 5-year Global Talent Visa is £623 and when compared to the almost £1,500 visa fee of the Skilled Worker Visa, it sounds like a steal. Apart from the UK immigration health surcharge you’re not really paying much in terms of fees.

Required Document For The Application Of Your Global Talent Visa 

  • Tuberculosis test results if you’re from a country where you need to take the test and Nigeria is one of those countries 
  • Documents that show your identity and nationality 
  •  International passport 

Other important information to note

Your children and spouse can travel with you although they will need to apply separately and use your application number and their application to travel with you or join you in the UK if they are eligible. 

You must apply within 3 months of receiving your endorsement letter. 

You’ll usually get a response to your application within 3 weeks.
