Do the job offer needed to apply this visa?

Hi, I’m a Sr UI / web developer - 14yrs experience and 10years in USA. Expert in Angular & other java script technologies. I am exploring opportunities to move to UK and found TNV is legit.

Do i need a job offer or employer sponsorship in order to apply this visa? if no, which visa should I apply> Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa or Tier 1 Exceptional Promise Visa?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Venkata,

You do not need a job offer in the UK in order to apply for Global Talent Visa.

The best way to decide whether you should apply for Talent or Promise route is to list all of your accomplishments agains Talent and Promise criterias (excel file?! ) and see where is your strongest chance. My advice is to keep it simple, see whether you able to satisfy 1 main and 2 additional criteria from one route or another. The only way to find out whether you are right or not is to apply and get feedback from Tech Nation.

Sincerely,
Herman.
