Post-Brexit, Tech Nation will continue to welcome applications from European Union (EU) citizens to its visa for technology workers.
The UK’s transition period for leaving the EU will end on 1 January 2021, so any EU citizen wanting to come to the UK to live and work will require a visa from this date onwards.
Tech Nation’s Global Talent Visa for Digital Technology has supported thousands of migrant tech workers from a range of sectors since its launch in 2014, with demand for the visa up by 48 per cent in the past 12 months.
The firm is continuing to invite digital talent to the UK, whose digital tech exports are forecasted to grow by 35 per cent by 2025, which would result in an additional £8.15bn worth of tech exports.
“The need for international and diverse talent remains – it’s what makes the UK tech scene such an exciting one,” Tech Nation said in a blog on its website.
“And it’s perhaps why UK tech has rallied significantly through the Covid-19 crisis.
“The good news is that, for people who work in digital technology (or want to), the Tech Nation Visa is a great option.
“Officially known as the Global Talent Visa for Digital Technology, our visa route was the first of its kind when it launched in 2014. Since then, we have supported thousands of brilliant migrant tech workers from around the world, and we are ready and waiting to welcome applicants from the EU.
“We invite you to join the UK in its ambition to accelerate our world leading status in the digital technology sector, from cyber to AI, machine learning to fintech, gaming to healthtech, whatever your sector or level of experience, our visa could be perfect for you.”
