Aimed at individuals who have graduated from a top global university; the High Potential Individual (HPI) visa will grant you permission to stay in the UK for at least 2 years or 3 years if you have a PhD or other doctoral qualification.
You must have been awarded a qualification by an eligible university in the last 5 years. The Home Office has published a list of the eligible universities.
Under the HPI visa, you are not linked to a specific sponsor, and it was designed to attract the ‘the brightest and the best’. You can be employed or self-employed, and this route also allows you to be accompanied by your dependants.
This is also a great option to UK businesses looking to offer work opportunities without going through the challenges of sponsoring a migrant.
You must have been awarded an overseas degree level academic qualification which Ecctis (formerly UK NARIC ) confirms meets, or exceeds, the recognised standard of a UK bachelor’s or UK postgraduate degree.
We have been helping talents and companies alike with their immigration requirement successfully since 2009. Contact us.
