Tech Nation Visa – How did you find the application process?


It was pretty hard. I mean being very honest. It’s supposed to be hard because the people
that are selected they have to prove that they deserve this Visa. It’s a rigorous application process
but it’s also a way of checking if you really want to commit to working
and moving over here. And I guess through the whole experience
after I submitted it I was like “Oh God I hope I get it” because I really, really wanted to have the
opportunity to work in the market over here. At the beginning I thought the bar was too high,
maybe I wouldn’t qualify. I did ask people from Tech City UK
“So these are my skills, what do you think?” They said these are guidelines not
necessarily specifics. If you can have alternative avenues that you can
prove that you’re capable of doing such things, not necessarily that specific thing. The toughest part was knowing where to look,
but once I knew who to talk to and where to find the information,
it was actually a really straight forward process. There is, this sort of split functionality of the Visa,
partially for business people, partially for tech experts you could say. So if you feel like you could make a strong
case for applying the criteria to yourself and to your work, I would say absolutely say go for it. I found it to be very easy. I had some questions just on process
and logistics but I could reach out to the Tech City team and they all quickly
answered any of my requests for questions. So it made the process very smooth
and I think end to end from discovering the visa type to submitting my application and receivingt he visa was only three months or a little over that, end to end.
