APPLYING FOR A GLOBAL TALENT VISA. STAGE 2: VISA APPLICATION
IF YOU’RE NOT A UK RESIDENT
The process takes 5-8 weeks as of August 2022.
You can apply for the Global Talent Visa from anywhere in the world.
Booking an appointment
You’ll have to book an appointment to submit your papers, biometric details and photo at one of the visa application centres:
If you want to get the decision faster, you can apply for Priority and Super Priority services (additional fee applies). Candidates can get a decision within 5 working days (Priority) or by the end of the next working day (Super Priority).
The availability of Priority and Super Priority services will be displayed when you book your appointment at the visa application centre. You can check if the service is available at your country's TLS or VFS Global visa centres.
After your immigration case is approved, you can receive your vignette sticker at the visa centre. With this sticker, you can enter the UK within 3 months (90 days).
