A - Apply for the Global Talent Visa

You can apply for a Global Talent visa to work in the UK if you are a leader or potential leader in one of the following fields:
- academia or research
- arts and culture
- digital technology
- You must also be at least 18 years old.

You can usually only apply for a Global Talent visa if you have successfully applied for an endorsement to prove that you are a leader or potential leader.

You can apply for the visa without an endorsement if you have won an eligible award.

You can live and work in the UK for up to 5 years at a time.

There is no limit to how long you can stay in the UK in total, but you will need to renew (‘extend’) your visa when it expires. Each extension can last from 1 to 5 years - you choose how long you want the extension to be.

You may be able to get indefinite leave to remain so you can settle in the UK after 3 or 5 years, depending on which field you work in and how you apply. This gives you the right to live, work and study here for as long as you like, and apply for benefits if you’re eligible.
