UK tech visa applications skyrocket after government slackens rules

Visa scheme for "exceptional" IT talent from outside the EU is proving very popular.

There has been a glut of applications from the world's top talent to UK tech firms in the past two years, since the government put a special incentive in place to relax the country's visa rules.

Tech City UK, the government outfit that promotes and supports the country's tech industry, said it had received more than 300 applications since it was given special powers by the home office to endorse "exceptional talent" in April 2015.

And there has been a spike in applications since April this year, when the rules were relaxed even more to allow fast-tracking for "specific scale-up skills," for those applying to work in the north of England, and for those applying as part of a team of five or more people.

On average this year, Tech City said it has been receiving "over three times more applications per month than last year," with this November setting a record high. The endorsement rate, meanwhile, sits at 70 percent - these candidates are then forwarded to the home office, which has the power to expedite the applications, working with a nominal cap of 200 successful so-called "Tech Nation" visas per year. It's expected that the cap will be reached before next April, in contrast to last year when only half the slots were filled.

Roughly a quarter of the applications are made from the US, but nearly half come from the APAC region, including India, South Korea, and Australia. A further five percent each come from Russia and Africa. Just under a third of the applications come from women.

Tech City chief Gerard Grech said he was pleased with the way the scheme worked, and added that the organisation would like to increase the visa cap - especially if Brexit restricts the flow of talent from the European Union.

UK tech visa applications skyrocket

"It's an encouraging set of results. It's one of those situations where we're in ongoing conversations with the government, and we're keeping an eye on it," he told the Telegraph. "We'll have more conversations when we get closer to the limit. They know that tech talent is a growing part of the economy. They also understand that tech talent is a scarce resource."

Patch property app founder Andrés Castaño, who is a Colombian entrepreneur, said: "Before, this type of visa was very restricted but now the criteria are clearer. It actually only took four weeks to get the visa, once I had all the paperwork. With an endorsement you can work in the industry or create your own business."
