When applying for a Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa or Tier 1 Exceptional Promise Visa, it is vital to understand the two-stage process.

Stage 1 – Endorsement

Anyone applying for entry into the UK via the exceptional talent/exceptional promise route must achieve endorsement from one of the following government approved institutions: The Royal Society, the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering, Arts Council England and Tech Nation UK.
The applicable body will need to endorse you as a leader or someone with exceptional promise in the fields of:

  • science
  • engineering
  • humanities
  • medicine
  • digital technology
  • the arts
  • fashion
  • architecture
  • film and television

Each endorsement body has differing criteria, which can be found here. Our team will assist you with understanding what your endorsing body is looking for and demonstrating on the application how you meet the criteria. If you require the expertise of a translator, we can arrange this.
Endorsement applications usually take around two months. However, If you are a digital technology specialist applying through Tech Nation, the decision may be fast-tracked if:

  • you’ve been accepted onto a recognised UK accelerator programme
  • you are part of a senior management team with experience in building and expanding a digital technology business
  • you plan to work and live in the regions (rather than Greater London)

Your application for endorsement may also be fast-tracked if you hold a peer-reviewed fellowship or are a senior academic or senior researcher at a UK university, college, or research institute.


A significant advantage of the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa is that if you are successful, you can choose to work as an employee, a freelancer, or set up your own business. Furthermore, if an organisation such as an orchestra or a technology firm wishes to employ you, they do not need to hold a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence.

How we can help

The criteria for the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent and Tier 1 Exceptional Promise Visa is set extremely high. Having your application reviewed by a professional immigration lawyer greatly improves your chances of being granted endorsement. Dr Navasardyan and her team have an in-depth knowledge of what endorsing bodies are looking for and the process UKVI follows when granting entry clearance. In addition, we will advise you throughout the life of your visa, ensuring you are meeting the criteria required for Indefinite Leave to Remain and British Citizenship, should that be your ultimate aim.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In house counsel than hiring a law firm
      So Rakhi Singal of RVS has just handled my divorce, it was a very complex case and I came to Rakhi at the very last minute on a friend’s recommendation. My case was a mess and I stood to lose everything.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In-House counsel than hiring a law firm, she does not approach her clients as a cash machine like many law firms do, she works with you to manage and minimise your costs and de-escalate conflict rather than throw wood on the fire.

      She took a huge personal interest in my case, she was always available on the phone, very quick to respond to emails and is very honest and trustworthy.

      My ex had huge spending power and used a team of high profile solicitors against me, Rakhi literally saved me from complete ruin and helped me get a very fair deal with me spending 6 times less than my ex on legal fees.

      Thank you, my new family and I will be forever grateful!!!!

      Rakhi’s passion for her profession supersedes the norm
      On dealing with a very stressful and emotional situation involving my young child. I was personally directed to Rakhi Singal. From the very outset of my situation, Rakhi identified the immediate difficulties I faced and offered me a sympathetic and rational approach to my situation, ensuring that she had a full understanding of my issues and concerns. Rakhi’s approach to my case was monumental and customary to my needs and that of my child, which was a fundamental point for me.

      The communication and support I received in and outside of court was nothing short of extraordinary. Rakhi’s passion for her profession supersedes the norm and is clearly demonstrated through her results.
      What Our Clients
      Say About Us
      Really impressed with Rakhi’s dedication to our case
      Could not be more pleased with the results!

      I approached RVS solicitors as they were highly recommended and now I completely understand why. Soon as I contacted Rakhi I knew I wanted to use her, she was so professional and easy to get along with. I was faced with clients who were refusing the pay invoices, Rakhi immediately reassured me that she was able to help me and recoup these costs. She dealt with the whole process very professionally.

      Really impressed with Rakhi’s dedication to our case and her knowledge and experience on dealing with the case. She communicated with us throughout the process, providing me with regular updates. Thank you so much, I cannot vouch for her work enough and RAW Invites are happy for you to continue to act for all their matters in the future.
