Speaking today in the House of Commons, the Immigration and Security Minister, James Brokenshire, has confirmed that the latest Statement of Changes in the Immigration Rules, published today, will be of benefit to the UK’s cutting-edge technology sector.
We advise individuals, businesses and universities that are passionate about the UK’s growing reputation in this sector and we see this as a really positive step in the right direction by the government.
Working closely with the Home Office in the UK and the British Consulate-General in New York, we recently completed a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) application for a truly exceptionally talented individual destined for one of the UK’s leading universities. If you need advice about this route, please contact us.
We will be providing a full round-up of all the other changes announced today shortly.
