Entry clearance under the Tier 1 Exceptional talent migrant route is applicable to persons who are internationally recognized as world leaders in their specific fields or show an exceptional promise of becoming a global leader in his/her specific field; usually in science or art; and have the intention of visiting the UK to take up a job.
The list below shows the steps by step process for an initial application as a Tier 1 Exceptional talent migrant:
If your entry clearance or initial application or Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa is rejected, you can contest the decision by submitting an administrative request to the Entry Clearance Manager (ECM). In a situation where ECM still stands on the refusal, you are still able to challenge it by making a request by Judicial Review in the High Court. If you are then able to overturn the decision, you will be granted leave for up to three years and four months.
