Global Talent - Future visa application and applying for ILR

Expand All

A current Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa holder or Global Talent visa holder can apply to extend their visa.

The applicant can request that the visa is valid between 1 - 5 years. The conditions to apply for an extension are: 

  • the organisation that endorsed you has not withdrawn its approval
  • you earned money in your expert field during your last period of leave in the UK - the guidance notes have a full list of acceptable evidence
  • the visa holder submits their visa application before their current visa expires

 

APPLY TO EXTEND GLOBAL TALENT VISA  

Please read the guidance on the Global Talent visa before you apply.

 

Fees

How much you pay to extend your visa depends on your situation.

Who you’re applying for
Fee
Visa applicant £608
Visa applicants who has a Turkish or Macedonian national £553
All dependants £608

 

Healthcare surcharge

A visa applicant must also pay the Immigration Health Surcharge as part of the visa application. The Immigration Health Surcharge calculator can be used to find out how much the IHS will come to.

 

Biometric information

If applying in the UK, an additional charge of £19.20 will need to be paid to get the biometric information (fingerprints and a photo) taken.

 

For more information, please see the Home Office 'Extend your Global Talent visa' webpage.

 

Holders of certain visas may be able to switch into different visa categories whilst remaining in the UK as long as they submit their application before their existing visa expires. For tailored advice on whether this is possible and what procedures to follow, please contact the Staff Immigration Team.
