If you can demonstrate that you have exceptional skills, and have exceptional talent to become a world leader in your field, you can apply for a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Visa.
This type of visa covers people working in science, the humanities, engineering, medicine, digital technology or the arts. When a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa is first granted it is for a maximum period of 5 years and 4 months.
Applications for Tier 1 Visas are considered according to the UK’s Points-Based System. Points are awarded on the basis of your educational qualifications, your future expected earnings, the type of sponsorship you require, your English language skills and the amount of money you have to support yourself in the UK.
It is very important to carefully consider these points before making a visa application.
