Join us on Wednesday, 30th November at 11 am GMT when we discuss routes to settlement in the UK for digital technology specialists.


The UK offers a range of immigration routes for digital workers and tech businesses. In some categories applicants need to be sponsored by an employer, whilst other categories allow employment and investment in the digital economy without sponsorship.

In this webinar, Gillian McCall and Georgina Griggs will take a look at the main immigration routes available to tech specialists, giving you the information you need to assess your immigration options based on your own qualifications and expertise.

Who should register for this webinar?

  • Anyone who is already working in the UK in the field of tech and who is looking to change employer or gain more flexibility from their visa;
  • Anyone from outside of the UK who is interested in finding potential routes to come to the UK to work in tech – either through employment or by starting a tech business.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • The various UK immigration routes available to tech specialists;
  • The Home Office requirements for each of these immigration categories;
  • The pros and cons of each immigration route;
  • The eligibility requirements of the Tech Nation Global Talent route – and whether you might qualify.
