I would like to ask how someone who got Global Talent visa under one endorsing body can switch to another endorsing body e.g. Tech Nation to Royal Academy of Engineering and vice versa. Would it be possible to only apply for Stage 1 endorsement for the other endorsing body to receive the new endorsement and update their visa?
I have looked around but haven’t found any guideline on it. I know on Tier 2 visa there is a guideline on updating visa if you get another job or switch employer. There’s also a guideline on how to switch sponsor for Tier 4 student visa.
Also, the old guideline on Tier 1 visa states that:
“If you wish to switch endorsing body, you must provide a fresh endorsement letter from your new endorsing body. They must be content you have made satisfactory progress in developing your business during your initial leave”.
I am yet to find any guideline on how this works for the current Global Talent visa. Would the person need to make fresh Stage 1 & Stage 2 application, how does it affect their dependants, what are the cost and ILR implications?
Any help on this will be appreciated.
