I am in the UK on a Skilled Worker visa and am planning to apply for a Tech Nation visa soon. However, I have some important events coming up in about 6 weeks or so, and would likely have to leave the country with an active Stage 1 Tech Nation visa application. Unfortunately, it is also important for me to meet certain timescales with my workplace so I’d need to apply before I leave.
I wanted to know if applicants are allowed to leave the UK during Stage 1 of the application, or if the endorsement application would be considered as withdrawn? I am likely to make Stage 2 of the application outside the UK as well, due to time-scale advantages of the same.
