The UK government has announced that it will introduce a new High Potential Individual visa to make it easier for internationally mobile professionals, with high potential to make contributions to the UK economy, to come and work in the UK.
Eligibility criteria will include graduates from a top global university.
The UK government will also explore the scope to expand eligibility to other aspects of high potential so stay tuned for more information on this.
What sets the High Potential Individual visa apart from other visa routes is that there will be no job offer requirement, giving professionals the flexibility to work, change jobs or employers.
The new route will also allow eligible professionals to extend their visa and permanently settle in the UK, subject to meeting the applicable requirements.
