Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) is for people who are internationally recognised as world leaders or potential world-leading talent in the fields of science and the arts, and who wish to work in the UK. These individuals are those who are already internationally recognised at the highest level as world leaders in their particular field, or who have already demonstrated exceptional promise and are likely to become world leaders in their particular area.

The Application Process For Extension Of Stay As Tier 1 Exceptional Talent

The following steps provide an overview of the application process for extension of stay as Tier 1 Exceptional Talent:

  • The first step in the process is for you to request a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Unique Reference Number from the UK Border Agency. This request must state the appropriate Designated Competent Body to endorse the applicant.
  • There is a limit of 1,000 places on this route. The UK Border Agency will provide you with a Unique Reference Number if there are places available within the limit for the selected Designated Competent Body.
  • You can then make an application to the UK Border Agency, together with the Unique Reference Number and supporting documents. Please note – the application must be submitted to the UK Border Agency Visa Services, not directly to a Designated Competent Body. You must make your application no more than 10 working days after the date when your unique reference number was issued. If you submit your application after this time, the UKBA will refuse it.
  • The UK Border Agency will send the relevant documentation to your chosen Designated Competent Body who will advise the UK Border Agency whether you meet their endorsement criteria.
  • The UK Border Agency will then consider the application, taking into account whether the Designated Competent Body has endorsed you, make the decision and notify you of the result.

A refusal of an application for extension of stay as a Tier 1 Exceptional talent is challenged by way of appeal to the First Tier Tribunal within 10 working days of the date of receipt of the refusal letter. Upon successful application, the applicant is granted extension of stay as Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Migrant for 2 years.
