    Global talent visa is for people over 18 years of age who have potential leadership ability.

    These people should be pioneers and leaders in academic or research fields, art and culture, or digital technology.

    You must receive a confirmation to prove your abilities; if you have these conditions, you can receive the UK Global Talent visa.

    Global Talent Visa is for the person who can make positive changes.

    In the rest of this blog, you will read all the things you need, including the required documents and conditions of this visa.


    Requirement indorsement:

    You can only apply for this visa if you have received confirmation of your ability, but you do not need confirmation if you have received a qualifying award.

    Consider that you should get a letter of approval from the relevant institution according to your field of study and expertise.

    How long can you stay in the UK?

    This visa is issued for 5 years and is considered one of the long-term visas in the United Kingdom. You do not have a limit to extend this visa if you are eligible; you can extend it for one to 5 years after each visa expiration as well. From 3 to 5 years after living in the UK, you can apply for permanent residence.

    English language requirements:

    You do not need to prove your language level in this type of visa because the UK is not going to limit influential and talented people for the reason that their mother tongue is not English.
