Global Talent visa costs

The Global Talent visa fee is payable in two parts:

  • Stage 1: endorsement fee
  • Stage 2: Visa application fee and Immigration Health Surcharge fee.

A break down of these can be found below.

 

The University of Oxford reimbursement policy webpage sets out which of these costs can be covered by the employing department/ faculty.

The University also provides a Visa Loan Scheme to can help applicants with the costs of visa, ILR, and citizenship applications. As the Visa Loan Scheme is administered through the University payroll system it is not, unfortunately, available to those with 'college only' appointments.
