What is the change? The U.K. is launching the new fast-track visa scheme for top international scientists, researchers and mathematicians.
What does the change mean? Those who qualify will be eligible for faster visa processing and an accelerated path to settlement.
Additional information: The Global Talent route will replace the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent on Feb. 20. U.K. Research and Innovation (UKRI) will manage the fast-track scheme. Under the program:
While the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent route was capped at 2,000 applicants per year, there will be no cap on the Global Talent route.
Analysis & Comments: The new visa program aims to help companies recruit foreign labor in the science and research sectors and is part of a broader effort to bring top foreign talent in scientific fields to the U.K. Additional information may become available closer to the Feb. 20 launch date, and Deloitte will update clients as needed.
