How Did We Help A Young Digital Marketing Expert To Get Her Tier 1 Visa

How Did We Help a Young Digital Marketing Expert To Get Her Tier 1 Visa?

On July 09, 2019 | In Global Talent Visa | By A Y & J Solicitors

Since the closure of the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, many migrants are considering other options to secure their leave to remain and future settlement in the United Kingdom.  The Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa is a route which many are considering.  It allows successful applicants and their family members to enter or remain in the UK, with an option to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain.  Despite being available for several years, the visa has had a low take-up, possibly due to high expectations from the endorsement bodies and their rigorous assessment process.

However, the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa is not an impossible category, and once granted, it provides extremely flexible work and lifestyle options.  If you are endorsed as either an Exceptional Talent or person with Exceptional Promise, you do not need to provide investment funds, you have no work restrictions, and you can work as an employee or on a freelance basis.

Assessing the suitability of a Potential Applicant

Ms S, a Tier 4 Student, was looking for opportunities to settle in the UK, before the closure of Tier 1 Entrepreneur route.  She approached us with a view that she might be eligible for the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa but was unsure if she would pass the rigorous assessment by the endorsement body.  She considered the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa route, but the investment funds of £200,000 were not available to her.

Ms S had established a company in her home country.  The revenue and profit generated by the business were not significant.  However, Ms S was highly regarded as a digital market expert and had several references from various well-known companies in the UK and abroad. Although this was not enough to meet the endorsement criteria requirements, we began strategising to help Ms S achieve her goal of obtaining the right to remain in the UK through the Exceptional Promise route. Having assessed her skills and qualifications, we identified that best endorsement body for her was Tech Nation.

When, Where and How A Y & J Solicitors Assisted Ms S

Our team dedicated themselves to achieving Ms S’s objectives over a five month periodWe drafted six versions of the personal statement to ensure it was persuasive, wrote and reviewed the two mandatory recommendation letters, and helped Ms S with her CV.

The supporting statement is a vital piece of evidence in a Tier 1 Exceptional Promise application.  It must reflect not only an applicant’s achievements but also how their talent and skills will contribute to the UK.  There may be many others who have the same skills as the applicant; therefore, it is vital that we demonstrate how our client/s stands out from the crowd.

Through our expertise in immigration law, we helped Ms S achieve success.   While preparing the application, we advised on the relevant courses that she should take, keeping an eye on her online presence, including her attendance as a speaker to various conferences and in videos. We also reviewed and compiled the ten best  documents to demonstrate Ms S’s strength as a candidate of exceptional promise.

In less than one month from the date of submission, we were notified that Tech Nation had endorsed Ms S for the Tier 1 Exceptional Promise Visa under the business skills criteria.
