Our client had applied for an Endorsement under the ‘exceptional talent’ route; however, the Endorsement application had been refused, with the Endorsing Body confirming that none of the requirements had been met. He felt that he may not have fully prepared his application for the Endorsement and now wished to rely on the support of a UK immigration lawyer.
Our client had worked on an innovative idea in his home country and had successfully filed patents regarding this idea. This had received a lot of attention in Bangladesh, and he had a number of features written about him.
The criteria for Endorsement are quite strict and we emphasised that he would need to provide a substantial amount of evidence to prove his talent, but the document would need to be concise and relevant. We advised the client that we should change tack and look to rely on different criteria.
Having gone through our client’s working profile, we advised our client on the type of documents that would be needed to support the application. He struggled with the content of the reference letters from the leading figures in his field. In this regard, we advised him of what points the letters would need to cover, which he found very helpful. The client provided us with the documents, which required a thorough assessment as some of these documents had already been rejected by Tech Nation.
We provided our client with a set of documents to support the application which we asked him to review. He agreed with the set we had prepared, and we moved on to finalising the Endorsement application.
Following a wait of just four weeks, our client was contacted by the Home Office to confirm that the Endorsement had been granted. Our client had been preparing for the visa application, and he was able to provide us with the documents needed for the application. After the submission of the visa application, our client received his visa after a wait of three weeks.
