New Applicant Dilemma

Hi everyone, I recently stumbled on the Global Talent Visa route and as a writer in the B2B SaaS industry, I was wondering what my chances of success would be if I tried to apply. I could probably get the three mandatory references but the other supporting documents are where my troubles lie. I am still young in the industry (<5 years) with no mentorship or volunteering under my belt. I switched from copywriting in ad agencies to tech writing 18 months ago and I have a few tech-related articles (<150) with my name in the mast head too. Thoughts?

Short but meaningful questions: Do you have a proven track record of …

  • Innovation
  • Contribution outside of your field
  • Impact / Significant contribution from your role
  • academic contributions through research

You need to select 2 of these.


Hi everyone, today makes it week 7 day 3 after I applied for my global talent visa. After the dreadful experience of waiting for so long, I got this email last night

I don’t understand what’s going on
My portal was and is still showing “submitted “

I think you should respond and show evidence you submitted. Quote tech nation reference number.
