I just received an email from “firstname.lastname@example.org” that “Tech Nation has advised that you meet its criteria for Exceptional Talent and I am therefore satisfied that you can be endorsed under Global Talent.”, with a link to the stage 2 form. I am assuming that I am past the stage 1 now and got the endorsement.
But I am a bit confused about the advice regarding the dependents. Me and my dependents have valid Tier 2 (and Tier 2 dependent) visas till aug 2024. I am planning to switch to Global talent, but does that imply that all my dependents MUST switch with me?
The advice on https://www.gov.uk/global-talent/your-partner-and-children gives a bit of a mixed message "
Your partner or child can apply to switch their visa either:
- at the same time as you or switch your own visa
- at any time before their current visa expires
Does this mean they can legally stay on Tier 2 dependant visa until August 2024, while I switch on Global talent?
Can someone please advice regarding this situaltion?
