In a news update dated 29 July 2013, the UK Border Agency published an article highlighting how the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa route has ensured that industry and academia has brought in exceptional people from across the world.
The UK exceptional talent visa route is for exceptionally talented migrants in the fields of science, humanities, engineering and the arts, who wish to work in the UK. These individuals are those who are already internationally recognised at the highest level as world leaders in their particular field or who have already demonstrated exceptional promise in the fields of science, humanities and engineering and are likely to become world leaders in their particular area.
The UK Border Agency has highlighted the success of some of the following talented migrants:
- Hugh Desmarias – a Canadian circus artist who chose to live in the UK because of it’s “great appreciation of the arts“;
- Sarah Ndgaire – a Ugandan musician who states the UK was “the perfect place as it boasts so many of the world’s cultures“; and
- Elif Shafak – an acclaimed Turkish author who said the route is “a great door for creative people, writers, musicians, film directors and artists.”
