Tech Nation Visa Scheme Surgery

Take advantage of a free advice session in Leeds on 30th November.

Tech North are holding a free ‘Tech Nation Visa Surgery Session’ at Ward Hadaway in Leeds on Wednesday 30th November. They are offering an initial amount of free support to help applicants understand the application process, fast track options, exceptional promise options and eligibility criteria.

The 30 minute ‘Office Hours’ style sessions will be open to members of the North’s digital tech community and those looking to relocate to the Northern cities and surrounding areas. You can participate in person, or via Skype for an online consultation. Book your slot here.

Advice will be focused on the Tech Nation Visa Scheme – whether it is the right option for you, or your potential new hires. The Scheme might also be of interest to those reaching the end of a graduate entrepreneur visa.

The Tech Nation Visa Scheme makes it possible for tech talent from around the world to come and work in the UK’s digital technology sector, and is part of Tech City UK’s and Tech North’s mission to ensure that the UK continues to maintain its position as a globally competitive digital economy.

The Tech Nation Visa Scheme is a two stage process that aims to allow people with high level skills in enterprise or technology to develop their careers and companies in the UK. People who can demonstrate ‘Exceptional Talent’ in digital business, or are recommended to have the potential to become world leaders, can apply to have their Visa application endorsed by Tech City UK.
