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 in one of the following fields:
- Academia or research
- Arts and culture
- Digital technology
It’s also possible to apply for the visa without an endorsement if you’ve won an eligible award. You can find a list of the eligible awards here.
In order to apply for a Global Talent Visa you must be at least 18 years old.
It is possible to apply for an extension under this visa, and each extension can last from 1 to 5 years.
You may be able to get indefinite leave to remain after 3 or 5 years, depending on your field of work and the application process you choose.
If they are eligible, you can bring your partner and children with you as your ‘dependents’.
