UK Welcomes Tech and Language Specialists

March 26, 2014

Britain’s open for business; or, at least, that’s what Prime Minister David Cameron is hoping to make clear with a new round of immigration changes designed to encourage highly skilled migrants to come and work in the UK. Now that the recruitment process crosses continents and countless counties, it’s vital for governments around the world to offer immigration routes which are appealing to the best candidates.

Tech-savvy types are the first to benefit under the terms of this new scheme, as the UK looks to solidify its position as a leading light in the technology sector. People who want to move to Britain to work in this sector will not need to be sponsored by an employer; rather Tech CityUK is able to sponsor the right candidates instead.

Tech City UK is the UK’s up-and-coming answer to California’s Silicon Valley; nestled in London’s East End, it may not pack quite the same punch as its American counterpart, but it’s still drawing huge numbers of international technology professionals. It’s

Likewise, linguists proficient in languages rare to Britain will also be welcomed, in order to improve the UK’s already poor reputation for foreign languages. The flagship Mandarin language course is just one small part of Britain’s continued courtship with China. And, what’s best about this route into the UK is that applicants are sponsored by the UK Government

Flexibility is another area where companies wanted to see improvement: they want the best employees to have all the flexibility they need in terms of immigration and this is something that the government have addressed. Instead of employees having to worry about obtaining, extending and sorting out their visas, they are now free to concentrate on their contribution to the British economy. The terms of these visas have been improved, too, with an extra two years’ stay on offer- taking the total from three to five.

Whether or not the scheme will attract as many highly skilled workers as the Government wants remains to be seen, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction. If the UK wants to keep its place at the top of the global recruitment tree, more schemes like this will be needed to encourage the migration that the country needs.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
